Abstract : The report documents a survey of United States Air Force personnel concerning their jobs in Vietnam and Thailand. The report describes the preparation of updated job inventories, selection of the study population, conduct of a mail survey, and personal interviews with commissioned officers and airmen. Primary purposes of the mail survey were to identify tasks in Southeast Asia jobs in which airmen experienced difficulty and to identify individuals for later personal interview. Interviews were conducted to probe deeper into matters mentioned by respondents in the mail survey, to compare jobs in Southeast Asia with the same jobs elsewhere in the Air Force, to ascertain difficulties in reaching or maintaining proficiency, and to determine the extent to which the existing Air Force system prepares airmen for jobs in Vietnam and Thailand.
