Cmmander James J. Coogan Jr., U.S. Navy Reserve (Retired)-Major General Wilkerson's article raised a number of interesting questions but one that didn't come up was whether the institution of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) should be abolished altogether.

Bacevich, professor of history and international relations at Boston University, made the case that the JCS is beyond salvaging in a piece entitled "Joint Failure."
