Abstract: As the country continues to increase in ethnic and cultural diversity, there are questions raised as to how this will affect group relations and the understanding of American identity. The military, while being very ethnically diverse has come to be seen as one of the most successful U.S. institutions concerning race relations in integration and promoting equal opportunity. Yet, little research has looked into how this racial climate might affect military dependents. This study compares the perspectives of former students of Department of Defense schools (DOD) and former public high school students on issues of diversity, race, and class. The study also examines social distance and self-esteem in these two groups. Former DOD students reported more experiences with diversity that were positive than former public high school students. These students also reported more egalitarian relations among students than public high school students. Former DOD students were also more likely to choose alternate ways (other than race or class) in explaining student organization and other social dimensions. Former DOD students had significantly less social distance and higher self esteem than those who had attended public high schools.
