Experts in military science and combat strategy, the members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff consult regularly with the President to offer recommendations on war planning and other national security concerns. Directing the operation and integration of U.S. forces throughout the world, the Joint Chiefs of Staff play a vital role in enhancing America’s ability to decisively engage the enemy.
