Abstract:

The Unified Command Plan UCP is issued by the Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff, under the authority of the President of the United States to establish the separate commands for the control of the armed forces of the United States. The UCP is derived, or should be derived, from the National Military Strategy of the United States and established the mechanism by which that strategy will be carried out. Although not its primary purpose, the UCP affects relations with other countries by the way in which it establishes commands that conduct military-to-military affairs with those countries. It also effects the rest of the U.S. government by establishing certain lines of communications between commands and other governmental agencies.
