Enlisted force management is concerned with meeting national military manpower requirements with the nation's citizens. It attempts to balance the demand for enlisted personnel, as determined by the requirements process, with the supply of enlisted personnel, in a cost-effective manner. This report presents a historical view of enlisted force management, from two perspectives. First, it provides a chronological account of how external influences have shaped enlisted force management and the evolution of enlisted management practices. Second, it describes some recurring themes that run through the history of the enlisted force: quality, specialization, integration, separation, and compensation.
