Abstract : SYCHOLOGY)), QUESTIONNAIRES, PREDICTIONSVOLAR PROJECT, ALL VOLUNTEER ARMED FORCESOne purpose of Project VOLAR, a field experiment conducted during FY 1971 as part of the Modern Volunteer Army (MVA) program, was to evaluate the effects of VOLAR innovations on attitudes toward the Army and Army career intentions of officers and enlisted men. In this report, data are discussed from questionnaires administered to random samples of permanent party officers and enlisted men at Forts Ord, Jackson, Benning, Carson, and Knox; at Fort Bragg and three posts in USAREUR; and in an Army-wide (except Southeast Asia) sample. The questionnaires covered backgrounds, attitudes, plans for the future, and evaluations of possible VOLAR innovations. The analyses of the data are discussed. (Author)
