Abstract:

The study was prompted by concern that the AVF faces serious manpower problems over the next decade. Specifically, four issues were addressed in the study. Effects, if any, the projected decline in the youth population 17-21-year-old have on quality enlistments over the next decade. Effects on the supply of quality enlistments if the economy continues to improve and the unemployment rate continues to decline. Additional recruiting resources. Manpower policy implications of attempting to sustain the AVF in the face of potential shortages of quality volunteers.
