Abstract
This thesis investigates the importance of socio-economic factors in recruiting and sustaining the All-Volunteer Force. It reviews previous research which explored the inherent factors of the recruiting effort in attaining enlistment standards. It considers the problem areas and goals of attracting and recruiting sufficient numbers of qualified enlisted personnel to fulfill the manning level requirements needed to satisfy military operations and missions. In addition, a brief history of military manpower procurement from a draft environment to the transition of volunterrism is included. The concepts of enlistment standards, factors influencing enlistment, and incentives enhancing enlistment are also discussed. This report concludes with recommendations concerning proposed changes to ensure the viability of the recruiting effort in sustaining the All-Volunteer Force concept.
