Abstract:

The paper focuses on several non-compensation inducements to enlistment, namely location and unit guarantees, reduced active service enlistment periods, and formal and informal skill training. The data examined lend support to the view that benefit packages incorporating a variety of non- compensation benefits can result in greater effectiveness of the AVF budget dollar than the current approach which gives primary emphasis to military compensation as the means of attracting young people to military service.
