Opportunities for women in the military continue to expand. At some point in the future, the Marine Corps may be compelled to address the assimilation of women into combat arms occupational specialties. Existing high attrition rates in the Marine Corps infantry specialties indicate a flawed selection and assignment process resulting in a poor fit of the person to the job. Because of gender differences, this problem will be magnified if women are incorporated into the infantry MOSs. This thesis identifies those gender differences and recommends predictors that could be used to better select personnel for the infantry military occupational specialties.
