Results suggested that the two Navy occupational groups, seabees and technical-administrative, were rather similar in both their attitudes toward the various hobbies and the amount of time spent in certain leisure activities. There were also similarities between the Navy and civilian groups. However, for certain hobbies and activities the Navy and civilian groups contrasted sharply. The similarities and dissimilarities among the groups are discussed and possible implications are drawn.
