This study was initiated by the special Air Force study team established by Headquarters, United States Air Force, to review the Morale, Welfare, and Recreation MWR program administered worldwide by Air Force commanders. The study team asked the Analysis Division, Directorate of Personnel Plans, Deputy Chief of Staff, Personnel, Headquarters, United States Air Force, to support the study with analyses of the current MWR program, of the environment in which MWR programs operate, and of the operational issues which have focused the current attention of decision-makers, within and external to the United States Air Force, on MWR program. The MWR program is not a stand- alone program. It represents an institutionally ingrained component of the Air Forces effort to sustain a high degree of readiness and retention. MWR activities are key factors which help to demonstrate Air Force leaderships genuine concern for the welfare of service members and their families. Properly resourced and applied, the MWR program affects the servicemembers aspirations and motivations, sense of pride, and sense of belonging. The goals of MWR program are implemented through diverse activities that provide community and family services, support a strong degree of physical fitness though individual and team-oriented functions, foster social gatherings and events, and sponsor recreational activities.
