Abstract:

Using national survey data, workers with prior military service were compared to workers who had never served in the military with respect to perceived job security. Results indicated no difference between the groups in expectation of losing their job within the next year. However, when asked how difficult it would be to locate a comparable job if forced to do so, respondents with prior military service indicated greater expected difficulty than did non prior service respondents. Implications of military service on civilian adjustment are discussed.
