This thesis examines the U.S. Navy's Philippines Enlistment Program (PEP) from 1981 through 1991, and its possible reestablishment. The study reviews the 100-year history of United States-Philippine relations, including participation in the two World Wars. The U.S. Navy recruited approximately 35, 000 Filipinos under PEP between 1952 and 1991, when the program ended. Special data files were constructed for the study by the Defense Manpower Data Center in Monterey, California. Approximately 3,600 Filipinos who were recruited through PEP were then compared to a sample of 250,241 other Navy recruits over the period from 1981 through 1991 in the following main areas: educational attainment prior to enlistment, Armed Forces Qualification Test (AFQT) scores, continuation and promotion rates, and separation characteristics. Results show that PEP recruits, when compared as a group with the sample of other Navy recruits, have: higher educational attainment prior to enlistment, higher AFQT mean scores; higher short-term and long-term continuation rates; more rapid promotion rates; and relatively fewer separations for adverse reasons. The study concludes that PEP was highly successful in recruiting "ideal" members of the Navy, based on the selected criteria. It is recommended that action be taken to assess the possible reestablishment of the U.S. Navy's Philippines Enlistment Program.
