Abstract : Values interpreted in terms of the need hierarchy concept of Abraham Maslow were assessed for a stratified random sample of 1360 Army personnel in grades recruit through colonel, and 850 young persons for some of whom military service was imminent. Both samples were further divided on the basis of specific internal criteria into military-oriented and civilian-oriented respondents. The findings indicate the military-oriented come from lower socioeconomic levels, and value security, work, and an ordered environment more -- personal identity and personal freedom less -- than the civilian-oriented. The findings have implications for Army selection and recruiting policies. (Author)
