The continued high percentages of skilled personnel in the United States (U.S.) Armed Forces that are currently leaving the service has becomes, not merely a personnel problem for the military, but for the U.S. as well. Much controversy surrounds the social and economic foundations with which the political and military establishment must deal. This thesis presents a methodology for analyzing the possible utilization of selective parolees from various institutions into the U.S. Armed Forces. The proposal in this thesis, it is believed, could drastically reduce current manpower shortfalls in the military institutions. The jobless parolee is a drain on the tax-structure both local and national. An employed parolee would stop this drain by producing taxable income. Finally, the severe problem of a revolving door-type-recidivism which has defied solutions could possibly be partially solved b this approach, The author admits that this approach is unusual, yet, it is possibly a valid assertion that unusual problems require creative and sometimes unusual solutions.
