Abstract : The intent of this study was to examine retrospectively the responses of Army psychologists who had responded to a survey conducted in late 1976-1977 (Mangelsdorff, 1978). The purpose was to document what factors induce some psychologists to remain in the Army and what cause other psychologists to leave the service. Specifically, what factors increase the likelihood of psychologists (1) extending beyond their current obligation and (2) remaining on active duty until eligible for retirement.
