Army awards ERMC retention award
The Europe Regional Medical Command’s retention team beat four other regional medical command teams to garner Army Medical Command’s early bird award for meeting fiscal 2011 re-enlistment goals.
The team met its goal by retaining 142 active-duty soldiers and seven reservists by Nov. 2, according to an ERMC press release.
Last year, the team met its goal of re-enlisting 254 active soldiers and 18 reservists by Feb. 24, 2010, to get the early bird award.
By the end of fiscal 2010, ERMC had re-enlisted 508 active soldiers and 35 reservists, an ERMC spokesman said.
Retention goals are based on a percentage of soldiers eligible for re-enlistment.
