Abstract:

A study was made to examine the nature of dissent and the characteristics of dissidents in the Army, and then to examine Army practices, procedures, and customs to learn whether or how they might be related to expressions of dissent. Volume I in the report of this study developed methodology for examing the problem of dissent on an analytical basis. This report goes on to further refine the scaling of dissident activities and to examine servicemens opinions about Army practices and procedures--likes, dislikes, and suggestions for change. Surveys of stratified random samples of servicemen in grades E1 through colonel were conducted at six major installations in CONUS. Analysis of the survey results permits suggestions as to emphases in programs and practices which might serve to improve servicemens regard for Army service.
