In 2000, the Navy started the Individual Augmentation (IA) deployment program. IA deployment provides a tool for military leaders to designate and assign specific individuals, not forces, to fill temporary duty jobs outlined by combatant commanders in support of National Command Authority (NCA) directed operations. IA is one of the Navy's' means of contributing to the Global War on Terror (GWOT) and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF). This thesis uses standard statistical modeling techniques to quantify the effects of IA deployments on Navy junior officer retention. Using these models we found that the odds of retention for junior officers who went on IA deployments were statistically significantly higher than for those officers that did not. This is an important result because Navy leaders have said that IA deployments will continue in the future. Officers are the foundation of the Navy command and leadership structure; therefore, it is important to understand the effects these deployments have on their retention.
