In the past three decades there has been a revolution in professional military education (PME) throughout the services. With the introduction of the Goldwater-Nichols Act, Joint PME (JPME) has become a growth industry, and certainly has experienced success. The bureaucratic and personnel policy requirements Congress dictated are largely being met, and the conflicts of the past decade have seen a marked improvement in the services’ ability to work together. Does that mean that the U.S. Navy has got PME right? No.
Nobody Asked Me, But . . .Fix Navy PME!
