This study was limited to all senior male ROTC students enrolled at South Dakota State University, Brookings, South Dakota, in the year 1972. Although the branches of the Army were categorized into two groups, combat arms and non-combat arms, the mission of the non-combat arms sometimes relates closely with the combat arms. This is especially evident in the Corps of Engineers and Military Police, both of which may be engaged in combat arm activities, depending on the nature of the situation. With the current post-Vietnam reduction in the size of the U.S. Army, there is an increased emphasis on producing, through the ROTC, a more highly motivated, self-reliant leader. According to the Chief of Staff of the Army, The Army is advocating the improvement of leadership by improving training consistent with principles and procedures derived from new studies in behavioral science.
