The Maneuver Center of Excellence and Fort Benning Retention Team counsels Soldiers and Family members regarding the benefits and career opportunities within the Army Retention Program and advises commanders on all retention aspects in support of the Army Retention Program goals:
- Reenlist, on a long-term basis, sufficient numbers of eligible RA Soldiers in order to support end-strength and readiness requirements.
- Enlist, or transfer, and assign sufficient numbers of eligible Soldiers who are separating from the RA into RC units, consistent within geographic constraints.
- Achieve and maintain Army force alignment through the retention, transfer, or enlistment of highly qualified Soldiers in critical skills and locations.
- Adequately support special programs such as the United States Military Academy Preparatory School (USMAPS) and Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) Green to Gold programs.
