Abstract:

The present research examined the relationship of attitudes toward the Army, duty environment and satisfaction with Army programsbenefits to the career intentions of officers and enlisted personnel. Results showed that similar dimensions of commitment to the Army, satisfaction with programs, duty environment, and career intentions are found within both categories of service members. Career intentions for officers, however, were more related to commitment dimensions whereas for enlisted members career intentions were more related to overall satisfaction with Army human resource programs and with assessment of housing and pay. However, while around 40 of the variance in the career intentions of officers was accounted for by commitment, only 10 of the variance in the career intentions of enlisted members was accounted for in the above analyses. The report also explores statistical and research methodological issues which should be considered in future investigations of these issues.
