Abstract : The American people have a high level of confidence in the military and support the idea of an All Volunteer Force (AVF). That support and government policies related to the sustainment of the AVF create the environment in which the services recruit. In turn, the military services establish goals, policies and incentives for recruiters to achieve enough accessions to maintain the AVF. All of the truly hard work is then done by the individual recruiter. A thorough understanding of this process by all involved would help ensure an uninterrupted flow of high quality recruits and provide a viable force for the next century.
