HOW NAVY TIMES OPINES "WHAT IF MILITARY RECRUITING COULD SCREEN FOR WASHOUTS?"...NJROTC (423 hits)


For Immediate Release From U.S. Navy Times!


What if military recruiting could screen for wash-outs?

It takes tens of thousands of dollars to get a new service member through recruiting and initial training, and costs the services hundreds of millions a year when new troops are discharged from the military before the end of their first contracts.

While there are some indicators as to the likelihood that someone will drop out, they vary across the individual services and they aren’t always foreseeable before someone has signed up, making early attrition tough to predict. That’s the conclusion of a Pentagon-funded study by Rand Corp. released in April, studying first-term attrition across the four DoD services from 2002 to 2013, totalling more than 2 million subjects.
“Ensuring force readiness requires the ability to identify recruits who are of sufficiently high quality and who will also fulfill the requirements of their first term of service,” James Marrone, the study’s author, wrote.

Higher education just became a much bigger factor on Navy FITREPs



The Navy is modifying its fitness reports to require officers to detail an individual’s educational accomplishments and how those pursuits will add to unit efficiency, the service announced.

Senior leadership believes the decision will show “that career-long military learning isn’t only job-related technical or tactical training,” and that a commitment to higher education will produce Navy leaders with more refined critical thinking skills, according to a Navy release.

Fitness reports submitted by each officer will document a sailor’s educational performance in the time period since the previous report, the release said. Navy selection boards are expected to adjust accordingly by placing added emphasis on educational accomplishments.

Military educational courses, civilian institution coursework, and professional and academic certifications will all be factored in, with each endeavor assessed in a similar manner as “tactical performance or military bearing/character,” officials said.
Navy leadership said additional informal efforts — reading selections from the Chief of Naval Operation’s Reading List, participation in military journals, or learning new technologies, for example — will also be encouraged.

For me it was "Join The Navy And See The World."

Yes those was the days and believe me, back in the early 70's when I went through, The Navy had a very strong and aggressive weeding-out program.

For me the motto was "Join The Navy And See The World." and the only reason why I wrote that Navy uniform was because I earned it.

After reading "What if military recruiting could screen for wash-outs?" I agree with this statement:

“In terms of differences across services, women are more likely to attrite in the Army than in the other three services; those without a high school diploma or equivalent are most likely to attrite in the Navy,” according to the report. “These differences highlight the potential importance of institution-specific characteristics, implying that personal characteristics may interact with institutional policy, peer groups, duties, or other aspects of military life and induce different rates of attrition in different services.”

Thank for sharing Sister levine, you brought back some good memories.
