Abstract : This report contains the results of a survey conducted to determine the motivational factors affecting the enlistment decision in 1968. Where possible, the results of this survey were compared to those of a similar study conducted in 1967. Questionnaires were sent to the Recruiter-in-Charge at all Navy Recruiting Stations, Branch Stations and Sub-Stations, with instructions to survey every man who applied for enlistment during the week of 9-14 September 1968. Information was obtained on the respondents' background, their reasons for enlisting in the Navy and their career plans. Responses were received from 2,926 men. (Author)
