Abstract : The Air Force Questionnaire was administered to 41,098 newly enlisted airmen. One-way distributions were made of all responses, and then two-way distributional relationships were computed between reasons for enlistment and other selected variables. Educational opportunity was the reason most frequently given for Air Force enlistment, followed by wide choice of assignments and then opportunity to travel. Reasons for enlistment appear to be associated with various other variables, such as indications of the subject's attitude toward enlistment in the absence of a draft, his career intentions, his previous work experience, his race, his educational level, and his mental ability category.
