"The military retirement reform act of 1986-or redux: A postmortem.” Journal of Political & Military Sociology (2001): 305-318 , 2001

From the introduction: “A continuing concern of the Department of Defense (DOD) is retaining enough military personnel to maintain a combat-ready force. This has become more of a task with the recent downsizing of the military. DOD manages the size of the military by controlling the number of new members who enter each year and by altering the incentives to encourage those already in the force to remain. One way to retain personnel is to change military pay and retirement benefits.”
