About this title


The junior officer attrition problem has grown in importance and urgency to reach the levels of the Secretary and Chief of Staff of the Army. They have instituted pay raises, pay table reform, and improved retirement benefits to stem the flow of captains and others from the Army. At the same time, the Army’s senior leadership has sensitized battalion commanders throughout the force to the issue and is trying to convince captains to continue in the Army. Yet attitudinal surveys predict and exit numbers verify that the exodus of junior officers has not abated. In the following monograph, Leonard Wong mines the generational differences literature for insights. Organizations in the civilian sector have been forced to deal with conflict between the Baby Boomer generation and Generation X and the Army is now discovering that it is no different. The analysis in this monograph goes beyond anecdotes, e-mails, and editorials to describe the situation the Army finds itself in today. It is at times an uncomfortable and difficult process to objectively examine our perspectives in relation to others. The key point is that today’s junior officers think differently than junior officers in the past and hence solutions to the attrition problem cannot come from the traditional menu of conventional fixes. Retaining our junior officers will require policy changes and critical leadership actions. This monograph convincingly makes the case for both.
