Abstract:

The study examines the attitudes and opinions that prevail in the Army today with respect to the Code. Using a survey methodology, over 2100 individual responses were collected and analyzed with computer assistance. A cross-section of service personnel was queried, to include prisoners of war from Vietnam. Attitudes were measured that concerned basic familiarity with the Code, estimated ability to comply with its Articles and opinion with respect to future retention of such a document. Results indicate overwhelming support for the concept or idea of a Code. Most of those interviewed saw a real need for such guidance. There was also strong evidence that certain Articles caused understanding and compliance difficulties. There was also receptivity to change in the present Code if this would resolve these problems.
