ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the state of civil-military relations in the U.S. Some of the most highly publicized of civil-military problems are having to do with women in combat and open homosexuals in the military. It involves the accusation that chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Colin Powell was invading civilian turf. The actions of some military officers to undercut the policies of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld suggest that civil-military relations are unhealthy and out of balance.
