Abstract : Results are presented of a research study designed to identify socio-economic, in-service, and personal variables related to the reenlistment rate of enlisted personnel in their first and second enlistments. The major source of data was a questionnaire administered on site to over 5,000 Navy men. The major conclusion concerning first enlistment personnel is that this population is heterogeneous and, therefore, general Navy policy and procedure changes would probably have negligible effects on reenlistments. The second enlistment population, however, was relatively homogeneous and could probably be affected more by general Navy policy and procedure changes relative to reenlistment. (Author)
