The Army’s active component shrank by nearly 1,600 soldiers in November, bringing personnel strength for the second month of this fiscal year to 487,134 troopers, some 12,100 shy of the drawdown goal for 2016 of 475,000.
Manning data reported to the Defense Manpower Data Center shows the Regular Army had 93,929 officers on active duty Nov. 30, 388,793 enlisted soldiers and 4,412 West Point cadets.
Statistics also show that 70,009 women were serving in the Regular Army, which represents 14.3 percent of that component.
The reserve components consisting of 348,627 National Guard soldiers, and 199,153 Army reservists, accounted for more than one-half of the Army’s total force of 1,034,914 soldiers.
