 United States Department of Defense - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Establishment had the unfortunate abbreviation 'NME' (the obvious pronunciation being "enemy"), and was renamed the "Department of Defense" (abbreviated as DOD or DoD) on August 10, 1949; in addition, the secretary was given greater authority over the military departments of the Army, Navy, and Air Force.
Under the act, the chain of command runs from the President of the United States, through the Secretary of Defense, to the regional commanders within one of several commands who command all military forces within their area of operation.
On February 22, 2002, the Department of Defense Office of the Inspector General has reported that DOD has not and will not account for $1.1 trillion of "undocumentable adjustments." In addition, there have been several high-profile Government Accountability Office investigations of the Department of Defense.

 Court Upholds NEPA’s Application in the EEZ
The Navy filed a motion for summary judgment on the basis that the plaintiffs did not have standing to challenge the Navy’s program.6 The Navy also argued that the LWAD Program is not a reviewable final agency action and the Navy’s activities in the EEZ are not subject to environmental review under NEPA.
The Navy countered by claiming that NEPA does not apply outside of the United States territory and territorial sea and, even if it does, the LWAD Program is not a federal action which can be challenged by the plaintiffs.
The court determined that the Navy’s decision to conduct environmental assessments for each sea test, instead of for the entire LWAD Program, was not arbitrary and capricious.
