- LAF captains and first lieutenants in the 2009, 2010 and 2011 accession year groups.
- Judge advocates with a Jan. 1, 2009 to Dec. 31, 2011 date of rank to captain.
- Lieutenant colonels and lower-ranking officers in the competitive medical categories in the 2009, 2010 and 2011 accession groups.
- Officers who are not selected for retention must separate by the end of this year.
