US Atlantic Command

Definition/Scope: In 1993, the U.S. Atlantic Command 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. One of USACOM's principal missions was to maximize America's military capability through joint training, force integration, and deployment of ready U.S.-based forces to support geographic commands', its own, and domestic requirements. Since USACOM was established, its mission had received increased emphasis with the issuance of Joint Vision 2010—the military's long-range strategic vision—in July 1996. Joint Vision 2010 serves as a conceptual template for how the armed forces expect to channel resources to achieve new levels of effectiveness in joint warfighting.
