Abstract:

It is the intent of the principal investigator to examine Naval personnel policies and practices since 1900. The investigation will focus on twelve primary dimensions of Naval life recruiting, primary training, discipline, uniform and grooming, leave and liberty, career development, rate and rank structure, compensation, recognition and awards, habitability, attritionretention, and retirement. These will be compared along a time line for the period 1900-present. By comparison of these primary dimensions at different points in time, it is anticipated that specific and recurring patterns in Naval policy formation can be isolated and predictable systematic relations between primary dimensions revealed. The utility of the historical dimension is increasingly obvious when dealing with large-scale change. Author
