Today starts the week-long Department of the Army Retention Training (DART) on Fort Belvoir!

Soldiers from across the US Army Military District of Washington and the 3d U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard) are attending this training to sharpen their sword when it comes to counseling Soldiers.

The training covers retention eligibility requirements, bonuses, bars to reenlistment and the Bonus Extension and Retraining Program. The NCOs will also learn the basics of successful retention, including responding to soldiers questions and accounting for individual needs and desires.

A special thank you to the instructors of the US Army Recruiting and Retention College for traveling all this way to facilitate this training!
