The purpose of this thesis was to develop and test a voluntary turnover model to examine reenlistment intentions among first term Navy enlistees within one year of expiration of active obligated service (EAOS) . A multivariate regression analysis was used to examine the influences of various nonpecuniary and pecuniary explanatory variables on the linear and logistic form of intentions to reenlist. Demographic and tenure variables were not significant in the analysis results. A revised model was developed and the results indicated that specific job aspects relative to the perceived existence of alternatives and satisfaction with military life need to be identified with further empirical analysis in order to pursue appropriate effective policies.
