This study examined to attitudes of Army and Marine Corps officers towards a set of career rewards, investigated the probability that these officers would receive the desired career rewards during their military careers and attempted to determine what relationship existed between the officers'' perceptions of important career rewards and their decision to remain in or leave the military. A survey was conducted on a random sample of 92 Army officers from the 7th Infantry Division, Ft. Ord, California and 119 Marine Corps officers from the 1st Marine Division, Camp Pendleton, California. The results indicated that intrinsic rewards were perceived, overall, more important than extrinsic rewards. Further, respondents perceived the probability of receiving these important intrinsic rewards as quite low. This perception was found to correlate highly with the officers' career decisions.
