Report: Most active and reserve services meet recruiting, retention goals

The Department of Defense released recruiting and retention numbers for the active and reserve services for fiscal 2013 through April. 

The four active services met or exceeded their recruiting goals for fiscal 2013 through April:  

Army -- 39,707 accessions, with a goal of 39,370; 101 percent

Navy -- 20,825 accessions, with a goal of 20,825; 100 percent

Marine Corps -- 15,073 accessions, with a goal of 15,034; 100 percent

Air Force -- 16,537 accessions, with a goal of 16,537; 100 percent 

All held strong retention numbers, but the Department of Defense says the Navy's 86 percent in the initial category is due to reduced accessions from four to six years ago. 

The Army National Guard, Navy Reserve, Marine Corps Reserve, Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve met or surpassed their 2013 recruiting goals. 

Army National Guard -- 30,442 accessions, with a goal of 29,296; 104 percent

Navy Reserve -- 3,151 accessions, with a goal of 3,151; 100 percent
