Stars & Stripes reports:
Under the Enlisted Involuntary Early Separation Program, soldiers who have fewer than 180 days left on their enlistment will be given a choice when their units deploy: They will be offered incentives to complete the deployment or be involuntarily separated up to 90 days prior to the end of their enlistment, according to an Army message.
The message does not say what incentives will be offered to the soldiers. U.S. Army Europe personnel experts were TDY and unavailable for comment.
The message also confirms that the Army will end its stop-loss program to all active-duty units who are deploying downrange beginning Jan. 1.
