All of the military’s active duty and reserve components are on target to meet recruiting and retention goals for fiscal year 2011 through July, the Defense Department said Wednesday.

All four active duty components met or exceeded their numerical accession goals for fiscal-year-to-date 2011, which began Oct. 1, 2010.

The Army achieved a 102 percent accession rate for active duty, having 55,131 accessions with a goal of 54,200. The Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force all have a 100 percent accession rate for active duty.

Five of the six reserve components either met or exceeded accession goals for the fiscal year. The Army Reserve and Marine Corps Reserve saw accession rates of 109 percent and 105 percent, respectively.

The Army National Guard saw an accession rate of 96 percent but is on track to meet its goal for the fiscal year, the Pentagon said.
