Alternative Accession Policies for Junior Enlisted Personnel in the Naval Selected Reserve: a Total Force Perspective
Published Date: February 1, 1984
This paper examines alternative accession policies for increasing the number of junior enlisted personnel in the Navy's Selected Reserve (SELRES). It compares the cost of increasing the size of the Active Mariner or Ready Reserve enlistment programs with the cost of increasing the number of Navy veterans affiliating with SELRES. The cost comparisons take into account the expected contirbutions of Active and Ready Mariner recruits to both the active career force and SELRES.
