Wiley-Blackwell features CPC Fellow Elder's research about why young men join the U.S. military

Apr 21, 2010

Wiley-Blackwell issued a news release today about an article by Carolina Population Center Faculty Fellow Glen H. Elder, Jr. The article, Pathways to the All-Volunteer Military, appears in the June 2010 issue of Social Science Quarterly, which is published by Wiley-Blackwell. The article was co-authored by CPC postdoctoral scholar Lin Wang, former CPC postdoctoral scholar Naomi Spence and former CPC predoctoral trainees Daniel Adkins and Tyson Brown.

The first paragraph of the news release states: "For many Americans coming out of high school, college, military service and the workforce represent the primary avenues of opportunity. With rising costs and stiff academic requirements, college tends to draw students from a relatively advantaged background. The all-volunteer military service also provides life opportunities to the "less advantaged" through access to material and educational benefits."

The full release is available here.
