Abstract : The author provides an assessment of the intended and actual effects of the Goldwater-Nichols Department of Defense Reorganization Act. As the 10th anniversary of the passage of the Act approaches, it is expedient to review the Act's principal objectives, measure the extent to which they have been achieved, and identify future actions which would further the Act's fundamental purposes. The author's critical analysis ends with the conclusion that the Department of Defense and the nation have benefitted from the implementation of this Act.
