Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (VJCS) is by law the second highest ranking military officer in the United States armed forces ranking just below the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The Vice Chairman outranks all respective heads of each service branch, with the exception of the Chairman, but does not have operational command authority over their service branches . The position of VJCS was created by the Goldwater-Nichols Act of 1986 to complement the CJCS as well as to delegate some of the Chairman's responsibilities to. In the absence of the Chairman, the Vice Chairman presides over the meetings of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and all other duties prescribed under 10 U.S.C. 153 and may also perform other duties that the President, the Chairman, or the Secretary of Defense prescribes.show more
