Abstract : The research developed and measured a set of attitudinal indicators along which first term enlisted men in the U.S. Army evaluated the quality of their Army lives. The research also sought to arrive at predictors of the career intentions of first term volunteers. Results indicated that the length of time spent in service, post location, and race had significant effects on the quality of life ratings given by men in the sample. Attitudinal indicators of the quality of Army life as perceived by enlisted personnel can be useful in a number of ways: Aid in setting priorities in personnel programs; evaluate the success of a specific program; identify potential trouble spots in morale.
