Abstract:

In response to a request from the Director of Military Personnel Management DMPM, existing information on retention problems in two Military Intelligence Occupational Specialties MOS was compiled 98G Signal Intelligence Voice Intercept and 33T Tactical Intelligence Systems Repair. The information consisted of reenlistmentattrition rates, subject matter expert opinions, and attitude survey results. Although existing data are sparse, they suggest that MOS 98G33T attrition may be a greater problem for midcareerists and careerists than for first termers and may be related more to job satisfaction and promotion potential than to monetary incentives.
