Though referred to as the American Caesar, even General Douglas MacArthur was fired by President Truman. Combatant commanders are highly dependent on their chains of command, particularly the secretary of Defense, accountable to Congress, and limited by their short terms of command lasting only two to three years. However, with the military assuming a dominant role in American foreign policy through the global war on terrorism and post-conflict reconstruction in Iraq and Afghanistan, the potential for the combatant commanders’ power, or at least the DOD’s, to grow will increase unless checked.

Command Missions The UCP also establishes the missions of the combatant commands. In accordance with UCP 2002, all combatant commanders are assigned the following missions:38 ● ● ● ● ● Deterring attacks against the United States, its territories, possessions and bases, and employing appropriate force should deterrence fail. Carrying out assigned missions and tasks. Assigning tasks to, and directing coordination among, the combatant command’s subordinate commands to ensure unified action in the accomplishment of the combatant commander’s assigned missions.

As a matter of practicality, the practice of designating one of the Service chiefs as the “executive agent” overseeing all forces within a theater developed during the war.
