Retention.  The Army, Air Force, and Marine Corps exhibited strong retention numbers for the sixth month of fiscal 2013.  The Navy exhibited strong retention numbers in the mid-career and career categories. However, the Navy’s achievement of 90 percent in the initial category is a result of reduced accessions from four to six years ago.
