Description

This volume is a supplement to The Department of Defense: Documents on Establishment and Organization, 1944-1978. This book covers organizational changes in the Office of the Secretary of Defense between 1978 and the end of 2003. During this period there were frequent and substantial adjustments, some directed by congressional action and some by the secretary of defense. 

The most important legislation affecting the Department of Defense between 1978 and 2003, the Goldwater-Nichols Department of Defense Reorganization Act of 1986, received its impetus primarily from Congress rather than the Department of Defense. This law joins the amendments of 1949, Reorganization Plan No.6 of 1953, and the Department of Defense Reorganization Act of 1958 as one of the four major changes to the National Security Act of 1947. Because of its significance, the entire text of the Goldwater-Nichols Act is included in this publication, as well as important documents preceding its passage, including the report of the Packard Commission (1986).

This collection includes documents detailing the functions of the Armed Forces and the Joint Chiefs of Staff as well as those pertaining to the roles and missions of the Armed Forces.
