D'Anton, Michael A. (1983). "Personnel Officers Attitudes Toward Vietnam Era Veterans." Journal of Political and Military Sociology, 11(Spring), p. 21-34.

The abstract provided with this article reads:
"Some Vietnam Era veterans claim that they have been the subjects of negative attitudes by the general population, particularly personnel officers, because of their participation in the Vietnam War. They blame their unemployment difficulties on personnel officers who have translated these attitudes into discriminatory practices. The purpose of this study was to investigate these charges. A Modified Semantic Differential was used to assess the attitudes of the 547 personnel officers toward 12 veterans' status, race, and educational levels of the males. The charges that there exist negative attitudes toward Vietnam Era veterans were not confirmed by this study; however, negative attitudes were detected toward black males and high school drop-outs. The implications of these findings are discussed."
