          Mr. Newell,

           

          Here is something I found pertaining to what you are inquiring about. The following was in the ARBA Board of Corrections Library of cases.

           

          The applicant's commander notified the applicant that he was being recommended

          for separation under the provisions of Army Regulation 635-200 (Personnel Separations

          – Enlisted Personnel) and DA Message 242110Z September 1971 (Qualitative

          Management Program (QMP) to grades E-1 and E-2). The commander cited the

          applicant's lack of potential for advancement and recommended a general discharge.

          The applicant acknowledged receipt of the proposed separation action on 20 April 1972.

           

           

          7. The applicant's commander formally recommended the applicant's separation under

          the provisions of Army Regulation 600-200 (Enlisted Personnel Management System),

          Chapter 4 and DA Message 242110Z September 1971, by reason of his failure to

          demonstrate adequate potential for promotion advancement. He was denied promotion

          to the grade of E-2, effective 10 April 1972, for inadequate performance of duty,

          unacceptability for service, and lack of potential for continued effective service.

           

           

          8. Consistent with the chain of command’s recommendation, the separation authority

          approved the applicant's discharge on 1 May 1972, under the provisions of Army

          Regulation 635-200 and DA Message 242110Z, and directed that the applicant be

          issued a DD Form 257A (General Discharge Certificate).

           

           

          9. The applicant was discharged on 1 June 1972. The DD Form 214 he was issued

          confirms he was discharged under the provisions of Army Regulation 635-200 and

          DA Message 242110Z September 1971. His service was characterized as under

          honorable conditions (general).

           

           

          Army Regulation 600-200, Chapter 4, then in effect, set forth policy and prescribed

          procedures for denying reenlistment under the QMP. That program was based on the

          premise that reenlistment was a privilege for those whose performance, conduct,

          attitude, and potential for advancement met Army standards. It was designed to

          enhance the quality of the career enlisted force, selectively retain the best qualified

          Soldiers to 30 years of active duty, deny reenlistment to non-progressive and

          nonproductive Soldiers, and encourage Soldiers to maintain their eligibility for further

          service. Department of the Army (DAPE-MPP) Message Number 242110Z, dated

          September 1971, extended the provisions of the QMP to allow for the early separation

          of Soldiers in the grades of E-1 and E-2 who had failed to demonstrate adequate

          potential for promotion advancement.
