Abstract:

A widespread concern of military personnel planners is to ensure that quality of life problems for military personnel do not adversely affect military readiness through personnel dissatisfaction and ultimately through reduced enlistment and retention rates. A broad range of personnel support programs is designed to offset the stresses of military life for service members and their families. Major changes in the military mission and relentless budget pressure have forced managers to reassess what programs are needed. Changing demographics of the force are also changing the mix of services that members use. This report develops a methodology for rethinking and reevaluating the militarys support agenda. It should be of interest to anyone involved with military personnel issues or force readiness. This report is part of a longer term study of quality of life issues in the military. The study is assessing the mix and scope of military support programs and will recommend policies to enhance the effectiveness of support programs.
