Abstract : The paper examines the problems uncovered in the exercise and examines why the JDA was not able to fix them. After looking at the arguments for and against unification, we will finally attempt to project the answer to the question: 'Can Unification Solve the Problems? To understand the impact that this new organization might have on the future mobilization efforts of the Department or Defense, it might be illustrative to look at the pre-existing situation in general terms. In this chapter, we will look at the transportation operating agencies (TOA) of the three major commands, their missions and resources. We will see what each is able to contribute to the structure of national mobilization efforts. And we will see how each provides one leg to the Defense Transportation System.
