Naval officers and enlisted personnel, married to other Navy members were compared to naval members married to civilians. Data from the 1985 DoD Survey of Officer and Enlisted Personnel were used to compare dual Navy couples to other couples on the basis of several variables to measure the efficiency and fairness of the assignment process. In general, naval policy was found to be working well. There were two areas of concern: (1) enlisted Navy couples had less sea duty, and (2) Navy couples had fewer PCS moves. Both problems have potential morale implications. Further study is recommended and suggested changes to policy are made, the most important being the increased moves for Navy couples to promote fairness.
