Question about the military?
On average would you say more soldiers re-enlist or not?

It depends on the country. In Canada, most certainly do, as it is the only way to be promoted to Corporal after 4 years, by going from a BE, to an IE (Basic Engagement to Intermediate Engagement). Many will quite while they are on their IE. If they don't re-enlist, they remain at the private level for their full 5 years. I know one guy who actually did that - but, he was the only one.
Other countries are different. E.g., in the USA, is is very common to do the initial engagement, and that is it. Rick, above, gave the numbers which I assume are from the US.

Not. That is why there are a lot more privates than sergeants major.

Many do one hitch for the GI Bill and then get out. But clearly, many also stay in.

Don't know about the overall average. Of me, and four close friends, only one reenlisted - 20%.
This was the US Army & 82nd abn.

Most do a hitch and leave.

Infantry MOS? Probably not. Reenlistment is more common for tech jobs in the Air Force.
