Military Service Members book
The 2005 Demographics Report from the Military Family Research Institute (2006) tells us that almost one half of active duty service members were younger than 25 years old; as expected, the average age of ofﬁcers is older, at 34.6 years. The average age of the enlisted ranks was 27.1 years. Over 86 percent of the ofﬁcers have at least a bachelor’s degree; fewer than ﬁve percent of enlisted had a college degree, even though almost 95 percent had at least a high school education.
