Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between draft vulnerability and attrition from the service academies. Attrition among the members of the Classes of 1972-1976 at each of the three DoD Academies was examined in relation to the individuals draft vulnerability imputed from his lottery number. The data did not indicate any strong or consistent tendency for draft-safe cadetsmidshipmen to have attritted in higher proportions than men who were vulnerable to the draft.
