In 1993, the U.S. Atlantic Command (USAC) was assigned the mission to maximize America's military capability through joint training, force integration, and deployment of ready U.S.-based forces to support the geographic commands', its own, and domestic requirements. This report discusses the USAC's actions to establish itself as the joint force trainer, provider, and integrator of most continental U.S.-based forces; views on the value of the USAC's contributions to joint military capabilities; and the recent expansion of the USAC's responsibilities and the possible effects on the USAC.
