Pagination or Media Count:
With the changing economic and military conditions in Europe, an alternative to the present policy of accompanied tours to Europe is needed. Both quantitative schools, housing, allowances and non-quantitative morale, readiness, retention, family factors are examined for two alternative policies, one with no dependents in Europe, the second with a minimum number present, both in conjunction with an 18 month assigned tour. The results indicate that despite the all-volunteer force implications, the minimum dependent policy should be implemented over a five year period to improve the combat readiness of USAREUR. Author
