“Sociometric tests were given to 16 companies of naval recruits numbering about 60 men per company…. The questionnaires requested nominations of liberty companion, covolunteer on a dangerous mission, and company recruit leader. The findings indicate that: status in the company is in general related negatively and significantly to Sick Bay attendance and disciplinary offenses…. Sick Bay cases tend most consistently to be less acceptable as liberty companions, but are equally acceptable as leaders. Disciplinary offenders tend to be less acceptable in all situations, but more consistently as mission companions and leaders.” (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
