Abstract : The purpose of the study is to describe the classification and assignment process applied to men entering military service and to similarly describe the process followed for their separation from the service. Special attention is given to how previously acquired skills are identified and acted upon and how the recruit's occupational preferences and interests are related to his classification and assignment. The nature of the counselling, training, and placement activities is the focal point of the description of the separation process. Information was obtained from a review of official policies, procedures, and manuals; interviews with staff members; and observation of the classification, assignment, and separation processes. A comparative analysis was made of the procedures of the Air Force, Army, Marine Corps, and Navy. (Author)
