Abstract:

The U.S. Army Retraining Brigade USARB at Fort Riley, Kansas, is a unique, 7-week training program designed to prepare former enlisted military prisoners for return to duty with improved military performance and personal conduct at their next duty station. The training is designed to place a soldier under sustained physical and mental stress within a stringent military environment. The various elements of training include evaluation, counseling, basic educational skills, problem identification, motivational training, and adventure training. The accomplishment of the USARBs mission is primarily evaluated in terms of the subsequent performance of those soldiers who are returned to duty. The present study presents complete results of an on-site visit in which 90 USARB graduates were personally interviewed and 261 supervisors of USARB graduates were surveyed at four CONUS installations during the Summer of 1982.
