dc.description.abstractThis thesis uses four data sets to examine the relationship between the expectations of the U.S. Navy enlisted men and the apparent influence of their expectations on the attrition rate. The 1979 DOD Survey of Personnel Entering Military Service provided a statement of expectations from men who were about to join the Navy, but had yet to be exposed to any military life. The impact of military experience in relation to expectations was obtained from the 1978 DOD Survey of Officers and Enlisted Personnel. Here, feelings of experienced enlisted men were expressed on areas concerning expectations of and satisfaction with Navy life. A third data set provided data on the attrition rates of those personnel who were in the year group that had participated in both of the above mentioned surveys. The fourth data set came from personal interviews conducted at the U.S. Navy's Treasure Island Discharge Processing Center. The interviews allowed for a more in-depth understanding of enlisted expectations and their relationship to attrition from the U.S. Navy.en_US
