Abstract:

This is a mosaic of the volunteer, first-term soldier the circumstances surrounding his decision to enlist, his impression of the service, and factors surrounding his reenlistment decision. It is in his words, comprised of sixty-four interviews with first-term soldiers from Berlin Brigade, V and VII Corps, Carlisle Barracks, and Forts Myer, Eustis, Belvoir, Meade, Campbell, and Knox. During the conduct of these interviews, balance was sought between those reenlisting and not reenlisting, male and female, minority and non-minority, combat and other MOSs, and geographic area of assignment. Despite that effort, some MOSs are duplicated however, the interviews encompass forty-eight unique job titles.
