Congress recently amended legislation that expands the services' authority to separate Regular Army enlisted members from three months to one year prior to their scheduled date of separation or Expiration Term of Service (ETS). The Army will implement this change in a phased manner based on scheduled unit deployment dates. He Army G-1 and Army Human Resources Command will send commanders and Soldiers specific implementation guidance. Commanders will afford Soldiers as much time as possible, but not less than 90 days, dedicated solely to transition activities. For more information, contact your unit Career Counselor.
