The study analyzes the performance of the Navy's Overseas Screening Policy for 1989, with specific emphasis on determining how many personnel were returned to the U.S. prior to the end of their tour. Overseas screening in its present form is the result of 16 years worth of development. the purpose of screening is to avoid sending members overseas with problems that cannot be handled by the overseas command. The data collected for this thesis included information on personnel incarcerated overseas, administratively discharged while overseas, medically evacuated from overseas, and those returned at the request of an overseas command. Estimates made from the data showed that the number of early returns is much higher than previously thought, and that there are substantial costs associated with these early returns.
