Abstract:

The future global security environment will be one of great uncertainty and complexity. United States military forces will be called upon to conduct operations in any number of environments. The ability to operate and succeed in this environment is dependent upon the Services abilities to work effectively as members of joint and coalition teams. The Army and Air Force are working toward that vision of joint forces that provide unrivaled capabilities to the nations leaders. It is critical that the two Services ensure their transformation processes are linked. Ensuring unity of effort throughout the transformation processes ensures that the Services will be far more effective and have greater combined capabilities for the Combatant Commanders. While both Services are moving toward greater effectiveness in executing assigned roles and missions, there may be disconnects in the two processes that could have strategic impacts. Finally, it is critical that the Services move toward fully joint cultures that enable unity of effort and thus increase the effectiveness of the American military as a whole.
