Thanks to the Goldwater-Nichols Department of Defense Reorganization Act of October 4, 1986, the United States joint force evolved from individual services competing for precious resources and conducting planning and operations in service stovepipes to the current Unified Command Plan construct. It reorganized geographic combatant commands and created functional combatant commands responsible for overseeing all military planning and operations in their respective area of responsibilities AOR.
