dc.description.abstractThis thesis determines the primary reasons why first-term enlistees assigned to critical occupations decide against reenlisting in the Marine Corps. The reasons given for not reenlisting are determined by analyzing responses to the Marine Corps Enlisted Separation Questionnaire over the period of fiscal 1985 through fiscal 1989 (third quarter). Questionnaire responses are analyzed using cross-tabulations and frequency distributions according to demographic characteristics (marital status, gender, race, and pay grade) and occupational skill requirements. The results suggest that, for most Marines, lack of promotion opportunity is the main reason for not reenlisting. Other reasons vary by demographical and occupational skill groups. Family separation influences the decisions of women and E-5s, while Marines in more technical specialties are more concerned with compensation. Reenlistment incentives are evaluate using the results of this study. Recommendations are offered to improve the current incentives and the criteria for reenlistment.en_US
