This unique volume examines in detail two recent periods in
military manpower history that have had a profound and lasting
effect on military recruitment and selection policy. Project
100,000 and the ASVAB Misnorming brought hundreds of thousands of
low-aptitude men into the military. While military officials recall
these times with anything but affection, some social activists
praise these periods as exemplary military social welfare ventures
that could be resurrected today.
Janice Laurence and Peter Ramsberger examine the history behind
Project 100,000 and the ASVAB Misnorming as well as their
outcomes--both for the military and for the men brought into the
service. The data do not support the claim that a tour of duty will
ultimately lead to civilian success for the low-aptitude veterans.
While some have fond feelings for the military and may have
profited from the experience, many were found to be less well off
economically and socially than their nonveteran counterparts.
