Abstract : Despite the recent addition of new incentives to encourage retention and recruiting in the Army National Guard, strength continues to decline. Waiting lists have all but disappeared. An anti-military feeling still persists in the nation. Pay raises and other positive administrative and training innovations have been effected. Modern equipment is being distributed to the Reserve Components charged with new and more demanding mobilization and depolyment requirements. Additional incentives are proposed to positively encourage enlistments and motivate retention. These incentives are: education assistance grants, a system of flexible reenlistment bonus, retirement improvement, and extension of Servicemen's Group Life Insurance on fulltime basis -- Priority Recruiting Incentives Motivating Enlistment and Retention (PRIMER).
