Abstract : The purpose of the study was posed in the question: 'Have the vast changes and upheavals in our society during the 1960s resulted in a difference in the characteristics and attitudes of recruits entering the Marine Corps.' Comparisons of three samples of recruits who entered the Corps in 1961, 1967, and 1969 indicated that there were significant differences in the characteristics and attitudes of recruits during the 1960. Findings demonstrated that during periods of vast cultural change and high quality of recruit input, training administrators and instructors may need to increase their emphasis upon means for developing the attitudes which are desired among their men.
