Chairman's Key Focus Areas
  • Sustain our values. 
    American values have made us strong for two and a half centuries, and we will never waver in our commitment to the U.S. Constitution.
     
  • Improve joint warfighting readiness. 
    We must be ready 24-7—that is our contract with the American people. We will also continue to work closely with our Allies and partners to improve our collective security and protect our common interests.
     
  • Develop the Joint Force of the future. 
    We will modernize our military through innovative concept development, advanced technology, and new capabilities.
     
  • Develop and empower Joint Force leaders.
    The future operating environment will place new demands on leaders at all levels. Our leaders must have the training, education, and experience to meet those demands.
     
  • Take care of our people and families. 
    They are our most precious asset. We must always keep faith with them.

Chairman's Focus on Global Integration

“The Joint Chiefs of Staff, in view of their global responsibilities and their perspective with respect to the worldwide strategic situation, are in a better position than any single theater commander to assess the risk of general war. Moreover, the Joint Chiefs of Staff are best able to judge our own military resources with which to meet that risk.” Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Omar N. Bradley in 1951 to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee
