Abstract : Ten years after Goldwater-Nichols, it is the opinion of General John M. Shalikashvili, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, that service members do not have an attitude of jointness. This study explores the history of joint training in the Armed Services for an explanation of the development of current training programs and of how they evolved. The paper investigates the basis of the Chairman's dissatisfaction and uncovers the lack of joint training of enlisted in all the Armed Services. Addressing the shortfall in enlisted personnel training, the paper proposes a possible solution. The solution requires philosophical and practical changes to the Armed Services Recruit Training Programs and the creation of a new joint training program for all enlisted personnel called the Joint Initial Entry Training Program.
