Abstract : The report is an anthology of six separate and distinct approaches to maximizing combat arms accessions. Each approach stands by itself as an independent effort. The six are: (1) Recruiting Advertising - an analysis of current practice and recommendations for future efforts; (2) The Challenge Pursuit Volunteer System - a program for providing attainable goals and incentives to attract and motivate enlistees throughout their enlistment; (3) Enlistment Options - an analysis of two proposed enlistment options; (4) Use of Women in the Combat Arms - an extensive and well documented analysis of the potential assets and liabilities associated with the use of women in the combat arms; (5) Social Science-Technology Approach to Recruiting - a detailed plan for a scientifically based program to increase the effectiveness of recruiting efforts; (6) The US Army Reserve Alternative - an analysis of Army Reserve recruiting.
