    MIDNDAD suggested this new thread. Here are links to two recent full text studies: Hollenbach (2003) on attrition predictors during plebe summer; and Bishop (2006) on characteristics and trends of attrition. Attrition is a complex construct and it is beneficial to understand influencing factors.

    Both studies are available for public release through the Defense Technical Information Center's (DTIC) online database: http://www.dtic.mil/dtic/

    What is DTIC?: "For more than 60 years DTIC has provided the warfighter and researchers, scientists, engineers, laboratories, and universities timely access to over 2 million publications covering over 250 subject areas. Our mission supports the nation's warfighter."
