Abstract : This paper investigates the use of the Veteran's Readjustment Program at the U.S. Army Missile Command with specific attention as to whether or not it presents a barrier to the recruitment of black females. Archival data by sex and veteran's preference were collected from the U. S. Army Missile Command's automated data bank and analyzed to determine employment trends of Vietnam Era Veterans from Fiscal year 78 through fiscal year 84 as compared to all other recruitment procedures utilized at grades 1 through 7 from outside government. Data analysis revealed that the Veteran's Readjustment Program has had adverse effects for recruitment of black females into the U.S. Army Missile Command work force. (Author).
