Abstract:

The proposed end to the draft in June, 1973, may result in the lowering, in terms of Airman Qualifying Examination AQE scores, of the quality of the entrants into the Air Force. The decrease in quality has been primarily attributed to the loss of those who have been under draft pressure and who have traditionally scored better on their AQE tests. There have been many studies and much written concerning the type of recruit that could be expected under the all-volunteer armed service. An analysis was made to determine if the quality of recruits in the logistics career fields will go down as some previous studies indicate. Those under no draft pressure will not now reluctantly volunteer to enter the Air Force. The mean AQE score for the replacements of those not now reluctantly volunteering was calculated.
