Abstract : Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps personnel assigned in Hawaii and living in civilian housing were surveyed for their opinions and attitudes about their housing and military support services. Topics covered included: Housing satisfaction, perference and perceived effects on job performance and career intentions, civilian housing characteristics and expenses, home owner concerns, and general problems. Results show that 73 percent of the service members were generally satisfied with with their present housing. Problems with initial housing costs, living expenses, and spouse employment were most prevalent among young enlisted families. The need for more and better information (in advance and on-site) from the housing offices cut across all pay grades. Short of being housed on post or base, young families need additional and proactive housing services.
