An Estimation of the Military Contribution to Human Capital.
Jurkowitz, Eugene Lewis
Effects of military vocational training on subsequent civilian income were examined in a group of first-term Army enlistees with varying types and amounts of vocational military training, including those with none (infantrymen). Data were gathered on such variables as age, ability, educational level, length of military vocational training, expression of preference for specific training, and whether or not the "referred training was received. Individuals within vocational groups were analyzed, and vocational groups were compared with the infantrymen. Data showed no positive impact by military vocational training on individual postservice income, but did reveal a positive relationship between preservice occupational experience, postservice occupations, and concomitant earnings.
