Precision Retention is designed so sustain unit readiness and force alignment through the reenlistment and reclassification of Soldiers. Precision Retention is broken down into two parts:
- Shortages: This identifies MOSs that are under strength and offer Soldiers promotion opportunities and monetary incentives for reclassification into the MOSs.
- Overages: This Identifies MOSs that are over strength and require reclassification out of the MOS in order to achieve force alignment across the Army.
