Abstract : Drill instructors were studied with regard to stress from the time of their training in Drill Instructor School to three months after and then one year after graduation - significant changes over time in coronary-prone behavior, blood pressure, and heart rate were obtained. The DI's self-perceived stress was inversely related to their job performance and directly related to their anger levels. (Author)
