Abstract:

This report analyzes attrition patterns of Army National Guardsmen during their training and rotation at the National Training Center NTC. It uses both a case study approach for seven units and statistical analysis of individual attrition to determine if attrition is higher for units attending NTC. It concludes that attrition is significantly higher for NTC units because of the effects of increased training time, which increase family and employer conflict and lost income from civilian jobs, and because of pruning of marginal personnel.
