The Army’s inspector general will visit about 40 installations for a wide-ranging look at how new soldiers are welcomed and integrated into the service, Army Times reported.

“Secretary [Christine] Wormuth will review the final inspection report to find ways to improve how the Army trains, mentors, and integrates new Soldiers into effective and cohesive teams,” a spokesperson wrote to Army Times.

Wormuth signed off on the sweeping “New Soldier Experience” special inspection last year when the inspector general recommended it.
