Abstract:

Air Force directives are very specific in stating a utilization precedence for military recreational facilities. Air Force regulation 215-1 lists the participation priority as active duty military and dependents retired military and dependents Reserve, National Guard and dependents DOD civilians and dependents and others however, for requests from non-DOD civilians, the regulation merely states that the installation commander is the approval or disapproval authority. Unfortunately, there is no Air Force directive to guide the commanders action i.e. there are no criteria on which to base his decision. This research has identified several elements that should be considered by commanders. Additionally, an order of consideration is proposed. A questionnaire which surveyed commanders of major Air Force installation in the United States was the research instrument used. By use of a matched pair comparison and other descriptive statistical techniques, the criteria were arranged in a hierarchy for commanders to use when making decisions of whether or not to allow non-DOD civilians the use of military recreational facilities.
