Abstract:

As the armed forces consider the feasibility of implementing an all- volunteer force, it becomes necessary to determine the impact of such a move on officer accessions. A representative sample of AFROTC advanced cadets were surveyed and categorized in groups based on draft vulnerability and expressed attitude toward officer training in the absence of the draft. Results indicate that AFROTC cadet enrollments are motivated to some extent by draft pressure. In comparisons made between self- and draft-motivated cadets, statistically significant differences were found on demographic, aptitudinal, and attitudinal variables.
