This thesis investigates some of the issues associated with single and dual-service parents in the Navy and the ability of the Navy to manage these individuals. Information from two surveys of active-duty Navy personnel, statistics from the Defense Manpower Data Center, and data from the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations (OP-13W) were obtained to meet the objectives of the thesis. This research determined that single and dual-service parents account for a relatively small proportion (8 percent) of the Navy's total force. The problems associated with these individuals appear minor and manageable. In addition, their productivity level is generally no different from that of other service members. The Navy has a policy governing the dependent care responsibilities of single and dual-service parents that proved to be effective during the Persian Gulf War. However, a slight modification of the policy may be required to ensure continuous readiness.
