Abstract:

These two quotations frame the most important military capability issues facing the United States military services in the coming decade the right mix between Active duty and Reserve forces and the right balance between service roles and functions a balance that reduces redundancy and preserves combat capability at lower cost. The 1986 Goldwater-Nichols law mandates a review of military roles and functions every three years. The two previous reports, submitted by Admiral William Crowe and General Colin Powell, recommended only modest adjustments to traditional service roles.
