This paper explores the prospects for improving cooperation among the branches of the U.S. military. The author focuses his discussion on the Department of the Navy and its interactions with the rest of the military system and on interservice possibilities in the potential wartime context. He cites reasons the Navy's planning process is different from that of the other services, identifies a consistent pattern of interservice cooperation in the past, and lists some areas in which the modern military context has put increasing pressure on traditional ad hoc joint arrangements. The author concludes that, though it is not likely that a steady, predictable program of interservice cooperation can be developed, there are opportunities for improvement in such areas as acquisitions and sealift capabilities.
