WASHINGTON, 28 March 2017 (Army News Service) — The Army now has
two-year enlistment options for 91 military occupational specialties as a new
incentive to offer prospects interested in joining its ranks.

The traditional options for enlisting for three, four, five and six years remain in
place, according to Brian Sutton, a U.S. Army Recruiting Command spokesman.

Soldiers who opt for the two-year plan and are found eligible will do two years of
active duty, followed by two years in the Reserve and then four years in the
Inactive Ready Reserve, he said.

Maj. Gen. Jeffrey Snow, commander of USAREC, said:

“We believe this shorter enlistment opportunity will appeal to young men and
women who want to take some time off between high school and college. It allows
us to demonstrate to them in a short period of time that the Army is about much
more than a job. It’s about experience, education and leadership.”
