Abstract : AWOL and delinquency information was obtained for 1,199 enlisted men during basic combat training and for 316 of these men after eight months in military service. Soldiers were classified as AWOL, delinquent (including AWOL), or nondelinquent. Stepwise discriminant function analyses were performed to determine how well delinquency scales and background information differentiate between AWOL and nondelinquent personnel and between delinquent and nondelinquent personnel during basic combat training after eight months in service.
