Abstract : The report contains data analyses relating to: perceptions of recruit training; the importance of 21 work and nonwork related factors; perceptions of attainment opportunity for these factors, that is, whether they are more attainable in the Navy or civilian life; relationships between perceptions and attitude change with reenlistment and career intentions; and a graphic mapping of a sample of enlistees based on reenlistment intention responses. The data indicated that perceptions and attitudes changed during recruit training and that concurrent relationships between intentions and perceptions were statistically significant. The data did not support the causal linkages between perceptions and intentions. (Author Modified Abstract)
