Hello Carmine,

	you've almost answered your own question: if you want the value to be
calculated during the iteration, leave the value parameter off! In this case
struts will use the body of the html:multibox tag as the value. So:

 <logic:iterate id="entry" name="vehicles">
   <html:multibox property="principalOperators">
     <bean:write name="entry" property="value"/>

does what you want.
