Teachman, Jay D.; And Others
Journal of Family Issues, v14 n2 p291-313 Jun 1993
Examined correlates of enlistment of young men in military. Focused on all volunteer force, paying attention to effects of work, school, and family roles on enlistment. Work and school enrollment significantly reduced likelihood of enlisting in military for whites but not for African Americans. Marriage and parenthood did not affect likelihood of military enlistment for whites or African Americans. (Author/NB)
