The report explores perceptions and attitudes concerning military service, and the way they are linked to views about enlistment. Data are based on a sixteen-page self-completed questionnaire administered to a national sample of civilians and a cross-section of Navy personnel. Trends related to age and education are examined for five analysis groups civilian men, civilian women, Navy enlisted men in their first tour of duty, enlisted men in their second or later tour, and officers. The findings support the conclusion that ideological issues play an important part in attitudes about enlistment or re-enlistment.
