Abstract:

This report describes the enlistment effects of the 224 recruiting experiment. The 224 program is a new Army recruiting incentive aimed at attracting high-quality personnel into the active Army and encouraging their later participation in the reserves. The program offers qualified recruits an additional option, beyond the normal set of enlistment benefits and choices they may receive the Army College Fund ACF if they enter an eligible specialty for a two-year term of active service, provided that they agree to serve an additional two-year term in the Selected Reserve. This program was tested in a national experiment from July 1989 through September 1990.
