Abstract:

The study attempted to discern and explain a positive relationship between Naval Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps NJROTC and Navy enlistments. Through analysis of enlistments of persons from the 91 Zip Code Areas when NJROTC programs are present, it was found that no consistently positive relationship between NJROTC and Navy enlistments exists. On the basis of a small number of interviews with Naval Science Instructors and students, it was also tentatively concluded that NJROTC units vary greatly that they are fully integrated with the curricula of the local schools that they appear to be subject to the same pressures as are other voluntary courses that the Naval Science instructors appear to be sensitive to overall school and community trends.
