Abstract:

This paper looks at the All-Volunteer Force AVF from the perspective of the unit commander. The paper is based on a study of all new accessions 93 males who reported to a missile battalion during an 8-month period in 1977. The soldiers were observed for 22 to 30 months to test generally accepted hypotheses about the age, education, quality, racial mix, and discharge rate of AVF personnel.
