Domestic missions for the Armed Forces by Sam Nunn ( )
3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
During the summer of 1992, Senator Sam Nunn, Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, initiated legislation to enhance civilian and military cooperative efforts in meeting critical domestic needs. In a speech before the Senate Armed Services Committee, he called for a major reexamination of the roles and missions of the nation's Armed Forces to help solve these problems. The political context of Senator Nunn's speech is as important as its content. The cold war was over, domestic crises were manifesting themselves, and the Armed Forces, especially after the Gulf War, enjoyed unprecedented prestige and unique capabilities and efficiencies. These efficiencies, Senator Nunn believes, can be turned on domestic difficulties. As budgets were cut, the broad area of roles and missions also became the vehicle for scrubbing the budget and revalidating missions and force structures. The revalidation process continues and, in simple terms, the defense budget will see dollars being taken out or new missions added. This paper details Senator Nunn's ideas for new missions. It sets forth his speech, the relevant materials from reports of the Senate Armed Services Committee and the House-Senate Conference Committee (Appendix A), and the final text of the legislation as enacted in the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1993 (Appendix B)
Sam Nunn on arms control by Sam Nunn ( Book )
4 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and Undetermined and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Senator Nunn stands out among American leaders as a spokesman for a strong defense who recognizes, as Churchill did, that defense must not be considered an end in itself but as it relates to foreign policy objectives. Senator Nunn has made an important contribution to arms control through innovative proposals for such arrangements as risk reduction centers. The breadth of his foreign policy thinking goes beyond defense. In this book, the reader can trace Senator Nunn's views on a variety of arms control issues in the 1980s. What is most striking is the consistency of his approach and the continuity of his thought
Recruiting malpractice : extent, causes, and potentials for improvement : report to the honorable Sam Nunn, member, Committee on Armed Services by United States ( Book )
5 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A survey was conducted of the armed forces recruiting personnel in all services, including active, National Guard, and Reserve. The results indicate the perceptions of recruiters, noncommissioned officer supervisors, and commanding officers on: the extent of malpractice within the respective service recruiting programs; possible causes for these actions; and probable corrective actions. On the basis of the survey, malpractice was found to be a continuing problem in every service component except the Air National Guard. The types of problems and their extent varied by service component, but there were some predominant trends. Most respondents believed that the major reason for malpractice was the goals or quotas that recruiters were required to meet. The desire to help applicants was the next most frequent reason given. The respondents were asked to evaluate the likely success of specific corrective actions. The most frequently endorsed corrective action was reducing or eliminating unnecessary recruiter administrative and processing responsibilities. The written comments of recruiting personnel concerned such things as: (1) the need to return to a draft, (2) the impact of pressure to meet quotas, (3) a questioning of the need for various enlistment standards and requirements, and (4) the negative effect of recruiting duty on a recruiter's financial status and family life

2 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO evaluated current measures used by the Department of Defense (DOD) to report military capabilities, focusing on: (1) formal and informal measures of force structure, modernization, readiness, and sustainability; and (2) merits and limitations of those measures. GAO found that, while DOD believes that military capabilities have improved significantly after 5 years of defense budget growth, changes in military capabilities are difficult to quantify. While many indicators are available to assess specific elements of military capability, no single indicator exists to describe overall capability. DOD infers military capability from various measures relating to combat readiness, sustainability, modernization, and force structure. GAO also found that: (1) appropriations that directly affect one component of military capability frequently have an impact on other components; (2) the Unit Status and Identity Report, which is the primary system for reporting unit level readiness, is an internal management tool that compares the number and types of personnel and materiel on hand against wartime requirements; and (3) the Force Readiness Report, which is submitted to Congress in support of executive branch budget requests, is the most comprehensive indicator of current force readiness. In addition, GAO suggested that DOD: (1) document the linkage between resources requested and benefits expected from those resources; (2) improve the Force Readiness Report to provide a clearer indication of current readiness and continuing trends; (3) incorporate into the Force Readiness Report a perspective on theater readiness; (4) benchmark reported readiness status against wartime requirements or applicable peacetime goals; and (5) project benefits resulting from increased training, including benefits related to support capabilities

Stopping the decline in US-Russian relations by Robert D Blackwill ( Book )
5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
U.S.-Russian relations are poised to resume their drift toward mutual alienation in the face of NATO enlargement. Failure to halt the downward spiral soon will jeopardize arms control regimes and erode U.S.-Russian nonproliferation cooperation. If relations are to improve, the initiative will have to come from the American side. The authors state that the United States should broaden the context of enlargement so as to emphasize Russia's legitimate security interests and a role in managing European security. It should pursue an agreement on a NATO-Russian charter to institutionalize NATO-Russian security concerns. If some of the heat can be taken out of the NATO enlargement issue, it is possible the Russian leadership might come to support START II if modifications and incentives were forthcoming. The authors suggest a variety of ways to fix the Conventional Forces in Europe treaty to lower ceiling levels. The goal should be to move quickly, recognizing that June-July will bring the enlargement invitations
