Bringing Back the Past

The Impact of Procuring Low-Tech Strike Assets on Air Force Culture

€ 53.95

Service culture affects how military branches organize, train, equip, and survive as separate institutions of the US military. The culture of a service includes the persistent, patterned way of thinking about operations and relationships. The population of a particular service will identify with a common mission, capability, and or ethos, thus forming a cohesive culture.

The first case study is the Army Transformation that was initiated by General Shinseki in 1999 and is still ongoing. The second case study analyzes the Marine Corps` decision to resurrect the amphibious assault mission during the interwar period. Both case studies are examples of how Army and Marine leaders influenced their service culture to adopt a major re-organization and a significant chang
