Abstract : The surface Navy has had and is facing a serious problem in the area of retention of surface junior officers. Through interviews and questionnaires, this study identified and examined pertinent aspects of that issue. Subjects were 162 surface junior officers who were students at the Naval Postgraduate School. The results of the study revealed retention factors which appeared uppermost in the minds of the officers surveyed. Recommendations for change and attractive aspects of the Surface Navy were indicated by the respondents. Recommendations for possible improvement in the Surface retention rate are included.
