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.
