Abstract:

The study was an intensive investigation of the impact of Army service on the quality of life of a representative sample of young Americans. A sample of 200 men and 50 women who had participated in the Project TALENT national survey of secondary school students in March 1960 and were known to have entered the Army before 1968 was selected to be representative of all such individuals. Each of these persons who could be located and for whom an interview could be scheduled--a total of 166 men and 49 women--participated in a three-hour interview. The information from this interview, including a review of their lives before, during, and after Army service to about age 30, was analyzed along with the Project TALENT information from the computer tape data bank.
