Abstract:

The study considers the problem of recruiting qualified enlisted personnel for the Army Reserve in a zero draft environment and under the all volunteer concept. A related problem, that of summer employment for youth, could be simultaneously treated complementary to both situations. It is the contention of the author that young people should have the opportunity to enlist in reserve status at age 16 or in their junior year of high school with the assurance of summer employment at pay scales competetive with part time jobs available in the community, for their summers of their junior and senior years in high school and further assurance of no interruption of their plans for a career or higher education, while honorably serving in reserve status in the armed forces of the United States.
