					                ARMY POLICY ON HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR STABILIZATION

Over 2000 Army families have joined the stabilization program for soldiers with high
school seniors. The program officially called “Stabilization for Soldiers—High School
Seniors” began in April 2001 and allows soldiers to extend their tour of duty at their
current duty station for an additional year so a family member may graduate from high
school. This initiative by the Army leadership is a key component of Well-Being as it
provides increased stability and predictability for families. However stabilization is a
REQUEST, not an entitlement---it can be disapproved. Also, the needs of the Army have
always -- and still -- come first...especially in this time of war.
Soldiers must request stabilization from PERSCOM before 1 September of the family
member’s junior year. The request is made on DA Form 4187. There are many
requirements associated with the request---you can find the entire MILPER Message with
contact numbers at….
