Abstract:

The appendix contains a detailed evaluation of a number of alternative proposals that may improve US Army Reserve Component procurement and retention of personnel in a volunteer environment. Thirty-two such proposals are discussed including an enlistmentreenlistment bonus, improved medical benefits, low cost life insurance, increased domestic action programs and greater freedom in personal appearance. Attractiveness is predicted using the results of an attitudinal survey of Reserve Component enlisted men. The discussion of each proposal includes status in and impact of implementation on the Active Army, present status in the Reserve Components, probable net cost and cost effectiveness, legislation required, and social and political implications of the proposal.
