Scope & Content This box of the Fort Ord VOLAR & EVATP Records includes the evaluation of the Experimental Volunteer Army Training Program (EVATP) & Project VOLAR, long range station planning, organization planning, and recruiting for the Modern Volunteer Army (MVA).

The 1971 evaluation of the Experimental Volunteer Army Training Program contains reviews of the EVATP training concept, implementation, conclusions and recommendations. Additional subjects within the evaluation consist of revisions to the Army Training Programs, role of the Drill Sergeant in EVATP, test procedures and results, trainee and cadre responses.

An evaluation of Project VOLAR provides an update of data, specifically related to morale, trainee attrition and performance, and training. A 1971 memo related to the evaluation notes the positive affects resulting from VOLAR, including attitude and reenlistment intention.

A study on recruiting for the Modern Volunteer Army by General (retired) Bruce Clarke, US Army, was written in 1971 and outlines his report of visits, observations, and suggestions related to VOLAR and MVA.

The date of these documents is 1971.
