Abstract : There are several aspects of United States military cultures which work directly against the development of strategic leaders. This paper explores how the existence and impact of these military cultures affect the joint environment. It argues that service culture has a profound influence on how leaders act. Military cultures need to be better understood as we move towards more and more joint operations. A better understanding of cultural influences will positively influence strategic leader development and decision making. A Senior Service School syllabus for United States Military Cultures is recommended.
