Abstract : A survey was administered to service academy cadets and private college students to assess their attitudes and knowledge concerning the role of women in the military. Results indicated that service academy cadets, particularly males, were less approving of women serving in a variety of military roles than were private college students. This was especially evident for combat roles. With respect to knowledge, service academy cadets were more knowledgeable than private college students concerning the current roles women play in the military.
