Abstract:

The document analyzes the effects of reduced draft calls and a changing economy on the quantity and quality of airmen volunteers following the SEA war. A model of airmen supply is developed in the context of occupational choice. The supply curve resulting from the model is empirically estimated using quarterly data, which consider changes in expected military and civilian earnings, unemployment, and the diverse effects of draft pressure. The elasticity of supply of volunteers with respect to pay and to draft pressure is determined. The number of volunteers for alternative scenarios is demonstrated, as well as the cost of obtaining various levels of airmen accessions for different scenarios. Author
