Abstract:

The study examines Army families as related to the important areas of housing, health, income, education, and recreation. Additionally, social and psychological factors such as career advantages, privacy, sense of community, security, mobility, religion, and marital relations are investigated. Comparisons are drawn between Army families and civilian families in selected areas. The report attempts to identify the state of the art by listing all available data and research sources relating to Army families. The preceived quality of the Army family and its impact on retention is investigated. The family is examined so as to better understand the hopes, aspirations, disappointments, and attitudes of family members toward the Army.
