DEFM351 - History of Military Retention


This course starts with the Revolutionary War and progresses through all major events in United States history which impact upon the military retention process. The correlation between the nation's history and military retention policies have direct connections that will be examined closely to develop a better understanding for military counselors and other interested students. Understanding the history of retention provides the background for those who want to avoid past mistakes. It also helps the professional military counselor to place retention needs in a historical context when developing career counseling programs.
