Abstract:

This thesis examined differences based upon entry age for non-prior service entrants into the military during the All Volunteer Force period in an effort to establish certain costs and benefits which might be attributed to entry age. Entry age groups were defined as 17, 18-20, 21-24, and 25 years and older and were further stratified by branch and sex. Data was supplied by the Defense Manpower Data Center, Monterey. Areas of study included entry age trends, accession quality, utilization, attrition, and marital status. Analysis of the data reveal significant differences among entry age groups as well as differences between males and females and each branch of service.
