This study of 543 consecutive admissions to the USAREUR Rehabilitation Center shows a certain concentration of negative antecedent developmental factors in the background of these men. I do not consider that the figures in this paper are by any means decisive enough for definitive conclusions, but I believe that they indicate an open field for additional sociopsychological research into the problems of the Armed Services abroad in peacetime. Additional data, should they be collected, could aid in a reevaluation of induction procedures presently in use. Such data could help in the selection of suitable personnel for overseas tours of duty in peacetime. They might also add some new and valuable insights which would aid in the leadership training of lower echelon commanders.
