Abstract : As the Armed Forces move toward a zero-draft force, assessment of the characteristic of current Air Force accessions becomes necessary. While the Air Force has relied upon voluntary enlistments to maintain its force strength, it has been recognized that many young men who enlist are motivated to do so by the prospect of being drafted. On the basis of draft lottery number, four groups of basic trainees enlisting during the first six months of 1970 were defined in terms of their draft vulnerability at the time of enlistment. These groups designated as high, moderate, low, and no threat, were compared on a number of dimensions. The data suggest that under zero-draft conditions manpower resources at the higher aptitude levels may be more limited than is presently the case. (Author)
