Abstract:

The military accessions program Project 100,000, established in 1966, has as one of its goals enlistment in the military services a yearly minimum of 100,000 men who have previously been declared ineligible for military service because of failure to meet required mental or, in some cases, physical standards. This study was conducted to evaluate the progress of these marginal ability personnel who enlisted in the United States Air Force. Data were collected on their performance in training and during assignment to jobs throughout the Air Force. The analysis revealed that their adaptability to the Air Force and job performance were at a lower level than that of the control subjects.
