Abstract:

This study examines the issue of youth and vigor as it impacts on the military retirement system. Particular emphasis is given to the period from 1900 to the present time. The study analyzes the legislative actions that have occurred since the establishment of a permanent U.S. military organization and notes the absence of any generally accepted definition of youth and vigor and the absence of usable data prior to the World War II era. The legislative history of military retirement is analyzed with special emphasis on the force management objectives which potentially acted as the causative agents for the legislation. This study was performed for the Presidents Commission on Military Compensation under Contract MDA903-78-C-0177.
