While military officials recall these times with anything but affection, some social activists. (Ebook; ~2h. See also Gregory's talk & Low-Aptitude Men In The Military: Who Profits, Who Pays?, Laurence & Ramberger ) Its not well-known, but one of the most consistent long-term sponsors of research into intelligence has been the US military/5.

Issues aside, the book is very well written and except for drafting unfit men the story could just as well be about recruitment policies at the height of the Iraq War when non-violent felony offenders, high school dropouts, and low aptitude testers were allowed to enlist in order for the military, but especially the Army, to meet end-strength.

So, on October 1,McNamara lowered mental standards and inducted thousands of low-IQ men. Altogether,of these men were taken into the Armed Forces and a large number of them were sent into combat.

Many military men, including William Westmoreland, the commanding general in Vietnam, viewed McNamara’s program as a disaster. For the effects of ASVAB misnorming, see Janice H. Laurence and Peter F. Ramsberger, Low-Aptitude Men in the Military: Who Profits, Who Pays. (New York: Praeger, ).

Preparation of this report was sponsored by the National Commission on Testing and Public Policy. The author would like to thank Linda Wing of the commission, and Drs. Moskos, J. Butler, M. Binkin, H. Sinaiko, W. Sellman, M. Eitelberg, and several reviewers in air force, army Marine Corps, and navy for their comments on an earlier draft of this by: 5.

The military provides a natural example of how those with lower intelligence learn less effectively and benefit less from education. The effect has been demonstrated as far back as World War II in which military fighter pilots were divided into groups based on a selection battery which included ability and motivation measures.

Westmoreland estimated that, in fact, only about 10 percent of McNamara’s Boys could be molded into real soldiers. Although some Projectmen did well in the service—passing basic training and going on to productive military assignments—large numbers of them had trouble coping with the demands of military life.

On October 1,McNamara launched his program, which he called Projectbecause he wanted to induct that many low-aptitude men each year. Imagine the situation. One day a man is unqualified for military duty, but the next day—lo and behold—he is deemed qualified.

Military intelligence is a need. There’s some of our specialties — we say STEM -focused [that is, Science, Technology, Engineering and Math], or STEM. The major reports on these periodic influxes of low-aptitude men disagree on whether their performance levels warrant their enlistment in the military, but all agree that these men were very difficult and costly to train, could not learn certain specialties, and performed at a lower average level once on a job.
