Abstract : Serum uric acid levels were determined in men graduating from O.C.S., men dropped from O.C.S., enlisted men with good records and enlisted men who were serving sentences in the brig. There were no significant differences in the mean serum uric acid levels of O.C.S. graduates and of men dropped, or of enlisted men with good records and enlisted men in the brig. However, there was a significant difference between the mean levels of officers and of enlisted men. The literature suggests that this may indicate a higher level of motivation in the officers.
