Abstract : This paper summarizes a model that balances the costs of accession and retention for non-prior service male recruits with four-year service obligations. We find that a policy of higher first-term reenlistment bonuses and smaller cohorts of recruits would enable the Navy to meet its career-force requirements at lower cost. (Author)
