This thesis examines problems of adjustment encountered by new recruits entering the military services. Factors affecting adjustments such as the recruit training staff and environment, recruit background characteristics, the military's image, the changing values and motivations of today's youth, and the recruiting process are discussed. Sources of tension/ stress and dysfunctional reactions to recruit training are examined; and finally, recommendations are made for alleviating some of the adjustment problems.
