Abstract : The Department of Defense in addition to supporting U.S. military goals and objectives around the globe is also expected to play a major role in the U.S. Counterdrug effort. The current roles and missions of the U.S. military are the result of the guidance received from the National Drug Control Strategy. This guidance regulate's the U.S. military to a support role primarily focused on the interdiction side of the Counterdrug effort. The military's roles and missions determine its level of involvement. This level of involvement satisfies the envisioned role delineated in the National Drug Control Strategy. An increase in the level of involvement by the U.S. military should not be undertaken until the National Drug Control Strategy clearly defines its desired end state.
