Often active duty military personnel are assigned to garrison duties that take them away from a daily military environment and into a more civilian oriented environment (Mattheisen, 2016). Civilian leaders are viewed by their subordinates as less effective leaders compared to active duty military leaders and therefore are unable to influence high levels of grit amongst their subordinates even though they utilize a transformational leadership style (Mattheisen, 2016). Although much research has been conducted concerning transformational leadership and military grit, no connection concerning the relationship between the two has been discovered, which creates a gap in the study. The purpose of this study is to investigate whether active duty military maintain their military culture and level of grit while working in a civilian capacity. In addition, it will determine whether civilian leaders understand the primary duties of military personnel, and measure if time spent in garrison determines a level of grit (Kupka, 2015).
