Abstract : The Congress and the Army have been dependent upon each other since the early days of the American Revolution. Over the past several years, however, there has been a growing concern that the interface between the two institutions is tarnished thereby hurting the Army's ability to defend its program. This study will examine key pints within the interface identifying those areas that impact upon the current unfavorable climate. The areas examined will include key players within the Congressional decision making process and their relationship with each other and the Army. Further, the study will examine certain aspects within the decision making process highlighting those areas where the Army can enhance its legislative presentation. Finally, based upon a review of the key players and significant activities associated with the Congressional decision making process, the study draws conclusions and offers recommendations on ways to improve the influence of the Army's legislative interface with Congress.
