Title: Air force enlisted personnel programs: their impact on the enlisted force, 1955-2005
Author: Berger, Dennis H.
Abstract: The enlisted force of the United States Air Force has a long history of achievements by its enlisted enlisted force despite the fact that it is the nation's youngest military branch . With its independence from the U .S . Army in September 1947 , the Air Force set about creating a new culture that would make it a distinctive service . The actions taken by Air Force leaders in developing the service’s enlisted force were paramount in its becoming a superb arm of the nation’s defense . The purpose of this study was to determine to what extent enlisted personnel programs put into place since 1955 have hurt or hindered the enlisted force’s development into what was to be a professional military force . How did various policies , such as compensation ; education , training , and development ; and recruiting and retention affect the force ? Those questions were asked . In order to determine how those policies affected the force , numerous interviews were conducted , accompanied by questionnaires and an examination of relevant primary source materials .
