Abstract
Increasing retention of quality minority officers is a high priority of the Marine Corps. Determination of any differences in survivorship among racial and ethnic groups and any factors associated with those differences is a first step. This study analyze the performance of Marine Corps officers at different career stages to determine what variables were associated with success or failure incrementally at successive career steps or continuously throughout a career. Factors that significantly impacted performance at all steps through selection to major were COMMISSIONING SOURCE, GCT SCORE, and COMPOSITE THIRD STANDING at The Basic School. Additionally, samples of the Marine officer population, matched according to level of significant factors, were used to determine if success was dependent on race. At the career stages of The Basic School, selection to captain, and selection to major, success was independent of race.
