There have been several attempts to make a Commander-In-Chief CINC the single integrator for all CONUS Joint Exercise Training. The prior attempts failed because the CINCs did not have command authority COCOM and the services retained Title 10 authority. On 1 October 1993, United States Atlantic Command USACOM activated with the mission of being the single integrator for joint training. I believe the operational objectives have a better chance of succeeding this time--the CINC has COCOM. However, there are some major disconnects between the CINCs responsibilities and the allocation of resources. This research paper examines the funding process for joint exercise training--looking at the historical evolution, impact of Goldwater-Nichols, and the most recent changes in roles, missions and functions. It highlights several problems that surfaced over the years and recommends solutions for those that havent already been resolved.
