Marginal Man and Military Service, A Review
DEPARTMENT OF THE ARMY WASHINGTON DC
Pagination or Media Count:
This is a report about the usefulness in the Army of men classified as marginal. Based on a review of relevant programs which the Armed Services have conducted from World War I to the present, the emphasis in this report is on Army experience. The condition of marginality as it refers to manpower is one of continuing interest. As technologies advance, the demands upon human resources are affected. What is marginal may be expected to change both in nature and degree. The results of research in this area should not be buried in archives as separate technical reports. Rather, it appeared wise to provide basic summary findings of the range of explorations and research accomplished and a guide to the researcher who wishes to examine more closely the technical aspects of procedures employed. To obtain information for these two parts, agencies outside the Army were included in the search. Among these were the Selective Service System, the Defense Documentation Center, and the National Archives.
