The report of the Commission on Roles and Missions of the Armed Forces CORM which appeared in 1995 revealed a subtle deficiency in the implementation of the Goldwater-Nichols Act. Under what can be viewed as a bicameral defense process, near-term visions developed by unified commands about longer-term service concepts. CINC visions reflect diverse regional interests and service visions indicate the particular mediums in which they specialize. Although this has enabled us to better understand the core competencies of each service as well as the regional insights of the warfighting CINCs, it has also led to tension and wasted effort. Sensing the need to integrate both types of vision, CORM recommended that the Chairman articulate a unifying vision. The resulting document, developed in close consultation with the Joint Chiefs and CINCs, is Joint Vision 2010.
