Abstract : The Air Force Questionnaire was administered to 3,141 Officer Training School trainees. One-way distributions were made of all responses, and then two-way distributions were made of reasons for joining and other selected variables. Educational opportunities was the reason most frequently given for joining the Air Force; being treated with respect and working with a nice group of people were the next most frequently chosen reasons. Reasons for joining appear to be associated with certain other variables, such as attitude toward military service in the absence of a draft, attitude toward military service as a career, and geographic area of enlistment.
