Description: This Statistics in Brief examines 2002 high school sophomores’ entrance into military service through 2012, up to 8 years after most graduated from high school in 2004. The report provides estimates regarding the timing of military service; the demographic and academic characteristics of those who served in the military; the relationship between students’ expectations for a military career and subsequent military service; the relationship between students’ military service and that of their parents; and the postsecondary enrollment, fields of study, degree attainment, and financial aid of students with and without military service. The report draws on data from the Education Longitudinal Study of 2002 (ELS:2002).
