One purpose of Project VOLAR, a field experiment conducted during FY 1971 as part of the Modern Volunteer Army MVA program, was to evaluate the effects of VOLAR innovations on attitudes toward the Army and the Army career intentions of officers and enlisted men. The report provides an evaluative summary and consolidation of findings in several studies that focused upon permanent party officer and enlisted personnel. It encompasses a evaluations conducted by each VOLAR installation--Forts Benning, Bragg, Carson, and Ord--and described in their post reports, and b the HumRRO studies of permanent party personnel at Forts Benning, Carson, Jackson, Knox, and Bragg and at three installations in USAREUR, and of an Army-wide sample. Recommendations for future action are made, based on findings concerning conditions that appear to be important to men in making the Army a more satisfactory place in which to work and live.
