This monograph examines the relationship between recruiting practices and conditions and the first-term success of Army soldiers. Success in the first term is important to the Army because recruiting soldiers is expensive. If soldiers fail to complete their first terms, the Army must recruit others to replace them, effectively doubling the cost. Given the expense of recruiting, the Army should reassess whether some management strategies could improve the success rates for first-term soldiers. Events in a soldier

Examines the pressures on the federal budget by presenting projections of federal spending and revenues over the coming decades. An aging population and rapidly rising health care costs will sharply increase federal spending for health care programs and Social Security. Such spending will cause federal debt to grow to unsustainable levels. Policymakers will need to let revenues increase substantially, decrease spending significantly, or adopt some combination of those two approaches. Contents of this report: Long-term Outlook for the Federal Budget; Long-term Outlook for Mandatory Spending on

Long-term fiscal simulations of what might happen to fed. deficits and debt levels under varying policy assumptions continue to illustrate that the long-term fiscal outlook is unsustainable. Despite some improvement in the long-term outlook for fed. health and retirement spending, the fed. govżt. still faces large and growing structural deficits driven primarily by rising health care costs and known demographic trends. Nearly 80 million Americans will become eligible for Social Security retirement benefits over the next two decades. Yet the real drive of the long-term fiscal outlook is health

In FY 2007, the Dept. of Veterans Affairs (VA) spent $4.1 billion on long-term care for veterans. VA provides -- through VA or other providers -- institutional care in nursing homes and non-institutional care in veterans' homes or the community. In 2007, the VA published a long-term care strategic plan through FY 2013. These estimates are based on workload projections -- the amount of care to be provided -- and cost assumptions. This report examined: (1) VA's reporting of planned workload in its 2007 long-term care strategic plan; and (2) VA's long-term care spending estimates, including its c

This statement addresses 4 key points: (1) the fed. gov¿t. long-term fiscal outlook is a matter of utmost concern; (2) this challenge is driven primarily by health care cost growth; (3) reform of health care is essential but other areas also need attention which requires a multi-pronged solution; and (4) the fed. gov¿t. faces increasing pressures yet a shrinking window of opportunity for phasing in needed adjustments. The simulations of the fed. gov¿t. long-term fiscal outlook continue to indicate that the long-term outlook is unsustainable. This update combined with an analysis of the fisc

When an armed force holds territory beyond the borders of its own nation, "occupation" is the term that most readily comes to mind. It may be difficult to think of a more felicitous term to describe the factual situation. But not all the broad spectrum of factual situations that we commonly think of as "occupation" fall within the limited scope of the term "occupation" as defined in international law. Not every situation we refer to as "occupation" is subject to the international legal regime that regulates occupation and imposes obligations upon the occupier.
