The Role of the Commander in Organizing the Joint Task Force (JTF).
ARMY WAR COLL CARLISLE BARRACKS PA
Pagination or Media Count:
World wide U.S. interests require the ability to project anywhere on the planet. Power projection is inherently a joint undertaking. American military power is usually employed in a joint task force JTF especially tailored for the mission. Typically the commander of the JTF CJTF is hand picked. The role that the CJTF envisions for himself will be crucial in the determination of the size, capability, and equipment required for the JTF staff, the way the joint forces and the joint battlespace are organized, as well as the command relationships within the JTF. The role that the CJTF plays in the execution of the JTF mission runs the spectrum from merely being a coordinator of the subordinate commands to being an integrator of joint capabilities. The role that the CJTF chooses should most effectively exploit the flexibility and capability of the JTF concept without compromising the established principles of joint warfare.
