This investigation was to determine which variables impacted 1088 Army reservists from 9th Mission Support Command, Hawaii in utilizing civilian education programs and services available to them throughout Pacific and Asia. Extensive research of active duty military has been available, but examining Army reservists without reference to reenlistment or retentions has been scarce. Self-identified factors in a 23-question survey included too many family responsibilities, little access to the Internet, and working full time which proved to be substantial barriers to soldiers’ educational postsecondary pursuit. These variables were statistically significant at the .05 level, using the t-test and multiple regression analysis. Other questioned factors, such as ethnicity, bilingualism, or location did not seem to effect soldiers’ decision to pursue civilian education.
