Abstract:

The purpose of the study was to examine the impact of military experience upon the post-service lives of low aptitude men. The data were collected by interview on a set of 477 Army separatees and 477 non-veterans who were matched by race, educational level, age, geographic location, and were within a narrow AFQT range. The literature concerning the theoretical post-service effects of military service was reviewed. Also, the results of a number of empirical studies dealing with effects of military service upon post-service economic status were examined. Modified author abstract
