Affect of Title 10, Section 10102 on the United States Air Force Reserve: Sustained commitment to military serviceBenjamin Howard Snyder
Following the September 11, 2001 (9/11) terrorist attacks on the United States, the United States Air Force Reserve enthusiastically defended the country (Kitfield, 2004). At that time, the Reserve was designed to back up the Active duty forces in time of war. In 2004, the end of the Iraq war, The United States Congress added to Title 10, Section 10102 the following: "at such other times for national emergency." This made the Reserve support a large portion of Active duty flying with no major change in benefits. This caused a higher demand of forces that lowered retention rates, caused personnel difficulties and tougher recruitment (Fowler, 2002). In equity theories, Adams (1963) for example states, if objectives change and demand more time, employees normally receive more benefits. This aids in keeping morale high. Up to this time, no new benefits have been added to the Reserve system. The purpose of this research proposal is to study the morale of the United States Air Force Reserve related to the change in Title 10, Section 10102. The study involves in-depth interviewing of 20 military personnel stationed in the mid-west area of the United States. Half of the individuals will be Officers and the other half will be Enlisted personnel. When gathering the information, it will be applied to the grounded theory method (open, axial, and selective coding) to identify the issues (Bryman, 2003). The schematic of the dissertation issues is identified in Table 1.* *Please refer to dissertation for diagrams.
