How do we divide the work that the military services and agencies must perform, or divide the work within the services? National and defense strategies provide the overall strategic guidance, but it can be complex and challenging to divide the responsibilities among the services and joint/defense agencies. This rack provides resources related to past, current, and future debates over the establishment of roles and missions for each entity in the defense enterprise.
