Abstract : Condensation of a report documenting a study to discover what factors influence young men to enlist in the military service as opposed to taking jobs or continuing education. The study covers a span of four years, 1966-1970, in the lives of 2,213 young men, beginning in the tenth grade and ending one year after high school. The major finding of the study was that there is no single military type. Enlistees are not characterized by any particular profile of background, ability or personality. (Author)
