Abstract:

Generals Powell and Myers are members of an exclusive fraternity of military professionals. This club, with membership currently numbered at seventeen is restricted to those men who have served as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Both reached the zenith of their profession through demonstrated competence, intelligence and an acute understanding of how the military operated at the political level. Each served during tumultuous times, providing military advice through multiple conflicts and transformation initiatives. The ability of the Chairman to establish a trusting relationship is imperative as he serves at the nexus between the military and the civilian authorities. One Chairman apparently affected a civil-military relationship resulting in an amiable atmosphere while another navigated through what was labeled a toxic environment of distrust between the armed forces and the Secretary of Defense. What then were the salient factors of their respective tenures that led to such differing results, especially in the realm of civil-military relations?
