This report profiles enlisted personnel leaving USAR drilling TPU status voluntarily, particularly unsatisfactory participants, based on prior service status: nonprior service (no prior Active Duty or Reserve service); prior Active Duty service (18 or more consecutive months); and "other" prior service (less than 18 months Active Duty service or prior Reserve service). Leavers from the 1995-96 transaction files are compared with the 1994 USAR membership. Loss categories include: no shows, unsatisfactory participants, voluntary separations, transfers from the USAR, and ETS. Unsatisfactory participants are the most common loss among nonprior and "other" prior service losses while voluntary separations are most common among prior Active service losses. Nonprior service unsatisfactory participants and no shows are more likely than other losses and the USAR membership to be unmarried, male, members of a minority race/ethnic group, and to be younger, less educated and lower ranking. Prior Active service unsatisfactory participants and no shows are more likely to be male, married, more educated, higher ranking, and less likely to be DMOS qualified or working in their own PMOS or SMOS than their nonprior service counterparts. "Other" prior service unsatisfactory participants and no shows fall between these two prior service groups on most measures.
