Abstract:

A primary objective of the Goldwater-NichoIs Reorganization Act of1986 is to strengthen combined and joint operations of the various military services. To fulfill this objective, the House Armed Services Committee established the Panel on Military Education to report its findings and recommendations regarding the ability of DOD to develop joint specialty officers through its professional military education systems. The Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff, established policies, programs, guidelines, and procedures for coordinating, among other things, the joint professional military education of members of the U.S. armed forces. This guidance is contained in the Military Education Policy Document. Military departments are required to incorporate this guidance into their own professional military education systems, In addition, there are joint professional military education schools which, by law, are joint in mission and orientation.
