Abstract:

The study is based on the hypothesis that job training and educational benefits are the most attractive enlistment incentives and that foreign military experiences with job training and educational benefits have the potential for application as incentives for the US All-Volunteer Force. Data was gathered using a literature search, interviews with both US and foreign military and civilian officials, and the development of conceptual quantitative models. It was concluded that job training and educational benefits are the most attractive enlistment incentives for the youth of the 1989-90s and that a program modeled after the West German experience should be implemented within the US All-Volunteer Force.
