Abstract:

DMDC data have been analyzed for all prior-service enlisted men who reentered the U.S. Navy during fiscal years 1973-1979. Accession and separation are investigated for two- and six-year periods, and are related to selected military and sociodemographic variables. The findings indicate that most reentrants left the Navy within six years of reentry and that better qualified reentrants were more likely to stay in the Navy than less-qualified reentrants. Other characteristics such as age, education, race, and AFQT score are associated with differing likelihoods of separating from the Navy. Author
