Abstract:

This study examined the relationship between an Air Force Information Officers perception of the Information career field, his job, hir prior military and civilian journalistic experience, his educational background, and his rank. The respondents were 200 randomly selected Air Force Information Officers. These individuals answered a thirty-item mail questionnaire designed to elicit their responses on a variety of questions dealing with their perceptions of the Information career field and their own jobs as Information Officers. Factor analysis was used to categorize the respondents on the basis of their agreement or disagreement with similar statements. The data analysis showed there were three distinctive groupings of individuals within the group sampled. One was categorized highly positive, the second highly negative, and a third group was listed as undecided.
