Abstract:

President Clinton clearly outlines his priorities in our National Security Strategy that America must continue to be an unrelenting force for peace throughout the world. This project analyzes the Global Engagement Strategy through a jointness review of the Goldwater-Nichols Act of 1986 to highlight Peace Operations and MTW Readiness. The results of the analysis with historical examples outline command and control of joint engineers as an issue. This project recommends a follow-on Goldwater-Nichols Act to improve joint engineering through the functional alignment of engineers by establishing a Unified Engineer Command USENCOM. Additional recommended improvements for enhancing engineer jointness are 1 Update the current joint doctrine on command and control of engineers 2 Establish a strategic theater-level engineer Joint Mission Essential Task List JMETL and 3 Keep the heavy division Engineer Brigade in the Force XXI design for 2010 and beyond.
