Abstract

About 13 percent of Americans have served in the military at some point in their lives, an experience which research has shown is beneficial for people’s educational and employment opportunities. Erika J. Brooke and Jacinta M. Gau explore the effects of military service on veterans’ involvement with the criminal justice system, finding that among prison inmates, military service is linked to fewer lifetime arrests, with those that served longer having fewer arrests.
