  THE STRATEGY-STRUCTURE MISMATCH
Unfortunately, the failure to think these structural relationships through, to clarify administrative boundaries, functional roles, and mission responsibilities, and to develop a control structure that links each administrative unit and responsibility center to the goals of the organization as a whole is highly inimical to decentralization.
This proposal was not adopted -- primarily because it threatened the prerogatives of the military departments and perhaps of Congress.
Paradoxically, the situation that led to centralization under McNamara -- competition among the military departments in the functional areas -- is the chief prerequisite for decentralization to the combatant commands.

 washingtonpost.com: U.S. Military in Europe May Change
The current thinking about revamping the U.S. military structure in Europe follows the transformation of the politics of NATO through the addition of 10 member nations that are taking notably pro-U.S. stances, effectively reducing the influence of "old Europe" powers such as Germany and France, delegation members noted.
Even discussing the shift sends the signal in Europe that the United States is ready to match changes in the alliance's political structure with changes in its military structure.
But as a career Marine officer he is seen as not wedded to the current structure of the U.S. military in Europe, which has been dominated by the Army since it was established as an occupation force in 1945.

Among military leaders and advisers there were two principal sources of concern: US capability to rapidly deploy military forces to the Gulf region, and the command arrangements for planning and executing combat operations in the region.
This case provides background on the military command structure and Gulf security issues, and then follows the spirited debate that ensued within both the Carter and the Reagan administrations over how to allocate those command responsibilities.
The case illustrates, first, the difficulty of deciding what military command arrangements are appropriate in an area of political controversy; and second, the difficulty of changing bureaucratic boundary lines and responsibilities in circumstances of contending institutional forces.

 friendly printed version:Commission on Review of Overseas Military Facility Structure of the United States ~ Marcus ...
Although their theories might seem rather divorced from today’s practical matters such as where to put our bases, their relevance is made clear by the fact that our enemies are using their approaches every day – in the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, now in Iraq, and likely increasingly so in the future.
This is in contrast to the approach of a competing military philosopher who is currently popular in the U.S. military, Carl von Clausewitz, who focused on marshaling one’s forces to take on the enemy in a climactic, bloody, and decisive battle.
Such approaches favor certain force structures, though the implications should not be taken as absolutes or mean that other forces and capabilities can be dispensed with.
