Current enlisted career personnel imbalances, caused by past management practices, are very costly. On June 30, 1976, the armed services had about 28,000 more career enlisted personnel than called for in their enlisted force management plans.

Enlisted force management plans specify the objectives of the services' enlisted management services. Years of service is the key to planning objective career forces, a projection of what the service decides it needs in the way of career personnel. The services plan to achieve their objective career forces in 7 to 10 years. The 7 to 10 year lag is unnecessary and costly.
