Abstract : With the advent of an all volunteer force, concern has been expressed to the effect that future accessions into the Navy might be insufficient to fill the Navy's skilled manpower needs. The report presents the results of research conducted to examine the feasibility of enlarging the size of the population from which volunteers are drawn by removing certain physically disqualifying resrictions to enlistment, and to investigate the implications of their removal.
