You are invited to participate in a survey, entitled “Survey of American Military Enlisted Personnel Political Attitudes and Behavior.” The study is being conducted by Donald S. Inbody, Political Science Department, of The University of Texas at Austin, 1 University Station, A1800, Austin, TX 78712. Telephone: (512) 923-0704.

The purpose of this study is to conduct research into the attitudes and thinking of American military personnel. I estimate that it will take about ten minutes of your time to complete the questionnaire. You are free to contact the investigator at the above address and phone number to discuss the survey.

Risks to participants are considered minimal. There will be no costs for participating, nor will you benefit from participating.

Identification numbers associated with email addresses will be kept during the data collection phase for tracking purposes only. A limited number of research team members will have access to the data during data collection. This information will be stripped from the final dataset. All publications will exclude any information that will make it possible to identify you as a subject.

Your participation in this survey is voluntary. You can refuse to participate without penalty or loss of benefits to which you are otherwise entitled. You may decline to answer any question and you have the right to withdraw from participation at any time without penalty. If you wish to withdraw from the study, simply close your web browser.
