The author describes here the results from the Career Attitude Survey, a new instrument to measure the relevant considerations which enter into the reenlistment decision. The instrument was administered to Missile Wing Operations Crew Officers at both McConnell and Malmstrom Air Force Bases. Crew Commanders and Deputy Commanders from the Minuteman base were quite close in their responses. The Titan crew officers were much more disparate in their responses, indicating a higher discrepancy in morale and positiveness toward the Air Force. Other studies have indicated that the Deputy Crew Commander in a Titan crew is unchallenged and feels redundant. These data seem to confirm these indications. In general, the responses from all samples were positive, indicating a greater level of committment than might have been expected. The results should not be generalized to other Missile men or to the Air Force as a whole. Missile Crew Officers are usually better trained and feel more needed than do their counterparts in some other non-flying phases. Author
