CENTCOM is one of six geographic combatant commands that DOD operates to perform its military missions. CENTCOM's geographic region is composed of countries located in the Middle East, North Africa, and Central and South Asia. CENTCOM and each of its service component commands' headquarters are composed of military and civilian personnel and receive millions of dollars in funding each year to accomplish assigned missions. GAO was mandated to review CENTCOM's resources. This report (1) identifies trends in personnel devoted to CENTCOM and its service component commands since fiscal year 2001 and any steps DOD is planning to take for reducing personnel in the future, and (2) assesses how DOD funds CENTCOM and its service component commands' headquarters costs. GAO analyzed data on authorized positions, temporary personnel, and headquarters costs for CENTCOM and its service component commands from fiscal years 2001 through 2013. GAO also interviewed DOD officials about commands' resources and plans for funding headquarters costs.

Discusses a report on the North Amer. Aerospace Defense Command's (NORAD) and the DoD air sovereignty alert (ASA) operations. Air attacks are still a threat to the U.S. and its people. To address this threat, NORAD and DoD have fully fueled, fully armed aircraft and trained personnel on alert 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, at 18 ASA sites across the U.S. This testimony discusses whether: (1) NORAD conducts risk assessments to determine the appropriate operational requirements; (2) the Air Force has implemented ASA operations as a steady-state mission, which would require programming funding; and (3) the Air Force has developed a plan to address the recapitalization challenges to sustaining ASA operations for the future.

The DoD's budget request for FY1997 included over $89 billion for O&M accounts, about 37% of DoD's request. DoD estimates that in FY2001, Operation & Maintenance (O&M) will represent about 36% of its total budget. Because O&M funds represent the largest share of DoD's budget, this report (1) determined how annual funding relates to military & civilian personnel levels through FY2001, (2) identified overall trends from FY1985 to 2001, & (3) identified key drivers (areas in which most money has been budgeted) through FY2001. Explains the reasons for major changes in funding due to migrations of funds between O&M programs & activities. Charts & tables.

This is a print on demand edition of a hard to find publication. This review found gaps in the support used to justify the decision to close the base in Heidelberg and consolidate forces in Wiesbaden, Germany. The original analyses were poorly documented, limited in scope, and based on questionable assumptions. The Army estimates that, depending upon the assumptions used, it will potentially cost between $1 billion and $2 billion more from FY 2012-2021 to keep the two brigades in Europe than it would cost to return them to the U.S. The DoD is reconsidering retaining the brigades in Europe in part because senior military officials in Europe have said that four brigade combat teams in Europe are needed to meet operational and mission requirements. Charts and tables.

Using journalists' own standards as the measure, an exhaustive analysis of nearly 3000 network news reports from the Reagan, Bush, and Clinton administrations reveals that the networks may do more to misinform than inform on a whole range of complex issues related to national defense. This study paints a disturbing picture of the inadequate coverage ABC World News Tonight, CBS Evening News, and NBC Nightly News provide to millions of viewers each night. Aubin concludes that network coverage of defense issues was too often tainted by preconceived attitudes and lapses in journalistic standards. While as much as twenty-five cents of every dollar went to the defense budget during some of the periods reviewed, the networks hardly covered the key issues surrounding the Reagan defense buildup or the dramatic cuts that followed the end of the Cold War. In addition to their inadequate coverage, the networks also deprived Americans of balanced coverage of the investments made in high-tech weapons that ultimately prevailed in the Gulf War. Though the networks receive good marks for foreign policy coverage, they need to improve the quality of defense reports. This book provides them with the lessons and prescriptions for doing so, and it serves as a primer for all Americans who want to know just what it was that the networks failed to tell them.

In the 1980s, volatile organic compounds (VOC) were discovered in the water on Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. Exposure to certain VOCs may cause adverse health effects, incl. cancer. The Agency for Toxic Sub. & Dis. Reg. (ATSDR) has been examining whether individuals who were exposed to the contaminated drinking water are likely to have adverse health effects. ATSDR'¿¿s is now examining whether individuals who were exposed in utero are more likely to have developed certain childhood cancers or birth defects. This testimony summarizes: (1) efforts to identify & address the past drinking water contamination; (2) the provision of funding & info. from the DoD to ATSDR; & (3) an assessment of the design of the current ATSDR study.

"In ancient times when people lived in caves and thatched huts, men looked to other men to fashion weapons they could use to hunt and to defend themselves and their families against hostile enemies. These stone club and flint arrow makers were the first defense contractors." -T. H. Henning, From Memoirs of a Defense Contractor, Chapter Fourteen, Epilogue Corporate divestitures, acquisitions, mergers and the feast and famine nature of defense contracts have taken their toll on thousands of people. Yet today, you will find defense contractors side by side with our soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines providing technical services in the national interest. They can be found on submarines, surface ships, flying with aircrews, in desert tents with our soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq and at spaceports in the U.S. helping the nation's space program reach towards outer space. Defense contractors have diversified their products and services to serve federal, state, and local government clients in such diverse organizations as health, education, civil aviation, agriculture, homeland security, intelligence, and other areas. This is a story of how one person persevered through three decades of technology change, marketplace change, major historic change, and the rise and fall of his own multiple careers. Memoirs of a Defense Contractor captures the author's experience at International Business Machines Corporation, Loral Corporation, Lockheed Martin Corporation, Litton Industries/TASC, (now Northrop Grumman), and Veridian, (now General Dynamics).

The 2005 Defense Base Closure and Realignment Comm. recommended that the DoD establish 12 joint bases by consolidating the mgmt. and support of 26 separate installations, potentially saving $2.3 billion over 20 years. This report evaluated DoD's: (1) efforts and expected costs to deliver installation support at joint bases; and (2) funding for facility sustainment, which includes the maintenance and repair activities necessary to keep facilities in good working order, at all installations. The auditor compared new support standards with the current support levels, visited 9 installations that will become 4 joint bases, and compared facility sustainment funding levels with requirements and goals. Includes recommendations. Charts and tables.

There are numerous Order of Battle books on the market. So what makes this one so special? Why should one decide on this particular book? Most Order of Battle books usually deal only at the division and corps level of a countrys army. Most higher commands are not covered. This book deals with all the branches of a countrys military, giving a breakdown of all the major echelons of command, from theater down to brigade, under each component (army group, armies, corps, division, and brigade), and the equivalent command for the other military branches are included. Second, it attempts to give an overall command structure of the countrys military, showing the central headquarters command structure as well as the major components (army groups, armies, corps, etc.). Third, most Order of Battle books list the commander and their dates of tenure. This one includes those but also lists their next duty assignments or where they went after leaving the post. One can literally trace a general officers career through the upper echelons of command, making this series completely different from all the others on the market.
