The first to spend July 4 with the troops; the second to lead an Armed Services Committee investigative team after 283 U.S. Marines were killed in a terrorist bombing during a peacekeeping mission at the Beirut International Airport. In the Committee's final report of December 1983, he would write, "A war of terrorism has begun and is likely to continue for the foreseeable future." 1985: A session with U.S. negotiators in Geneva — center of talks with the Soviet Union on nuclear weapons.

His input: to require that intelligence be accessible to the U.S. forces deployed and at risk.During this time, he was also engaged in the legislative work on national security that included:The 1986 Defense Reorganization — the Goldwater–Nichols Act — that fundamentally restructured military command and control — so that troops serving in high-threat combat and peacekeeping missions — would have a responsive and dynamic military chain of command.Implementation of the Packard Commission recommendations to reform Pentagon acquisition practices.Legislation that limited the deployment of nuclear ballistic missiles, and ensuring that missile defense technology be treaty-compliant.Funding for the Navy's F-18 fighter, powered by GE engines from Lynn, Massachusetts. Twenty years later the F-18 remains as the backbone of Naval Aviation;The Small Disadvantaged Business Act that allowed more American citizens to compete in government contracting.Mavroules served as chairman of the House subcommittee on investigations, helped expose major cost overruns on Navy aircraft and shed light on the deadly 1989 explosion on the USS Iowa.
