Abstract:

This study was used to examine the origins and historical development of U.S. military officer and enlisted clubs. It discusses the historical development of the current objectives, modes of operation, and legal basis of military clubs. Congressional oversight of military club activities is covered with particular emphasis being given to related Congressional hearings and General Accounting Office GAO reviews conducted between 1970 and 1980. A detailed analysis of the U.S. Navy club systems structure is also presented. Current Navy club management problems are documented and potential management options are advanced to deal with these problems. A model for ranking individual Navy clubs based on location, rank of members, and costs of membership is included in the report. Though specific recommendations are limited to the Navy club system, they are applicable to club systems of all four armed service branches. Author
