Intergenerational occupational inheritance in the Navy.
Robinson, Katherine Sue
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis studies differences between Navy personnel whose parents had had military service, referred to as juniors and those whose parents did not serve in the military, nonjuniors. Among Navy personnel surveyed in the 1978 DOD Survey, juniors entered the service earlier than nonjuniors, but exhibited few differences from nonjuniors in attitudes toward the military and in career and reenlistment intentions. Juniors of career personnel entered the Navy in proportions up to four times their estimated proportions in the national population, indicating the existence of strong intergenerational occupational inheritance in the Navy.
