We have an absolutely top quality Army composed of outstanding and proven professionals.
Unfortunately, as our Army reduces in size, some of our Soldiers will be asked to leave the
Army. To achieve mandated end strength reductions, the Army has taken a number of steps
including the execution of Qualitative Service Program (QSP) Boards. These reductions
ensure the Army maintains readiness while drawing down and is able to sustain manpower
needs to meet the future end strength.
Senior leaders will personally notify selected Soldiers within their command; the Army will not
publish selection lists. Many of these selected Soldiers have performed superbly during more
than a decade of war, displaying the values, character and competence that make our Army
second to none. We must not waver on our commitment to support all those who have
selflessly served with courage and honor.
