Abstract:

This study evaluates the relationship between moral waiver status and unsuitability attrition for FY-82 military accessions. The results present evidence that accessions who require moral waivers for service entry are likely than others to receive unsuitability discharges. These results support current Air Force policy, which disqualifies prospective recruits with moral waivers from sensitive job assignments. Additional research is needed to examine the relationship between moral waiver status and unsuitability attrition for recruits in sensitive jobs.
