Abstract:

Two questionnaire surveys were conducted during the summer and fall of 1976 at the direction of the Chief of Staff EUSA. These surveys were described in two reports under the same general title, Women Soldiers in Korea, Bolin, Johns and Cowings, 1977. One report describes troop viewpoints. The other report describes commander viewpoints regarding the expanded roles for women soldiers as those roles have been experienced in Korea. The timing of the surveys is important. They follow the first years experience with larger numbers of women who were assigned all over Korea in both traditional and non- traditional duties for women soldiers. This report is focussed on special priority concerns of the command. The earlier reports demonstrated that there was a generally high level of satisfaction among troops and commanders of units employing women soldiers. Certain specific problem areas were identified for commandwide attention. Certain other areas appeared to require longer-term training and education efforts.
