stratcom nukes?[edit]

The first sentence is unclear: is stratcom the one cocom with nukes, or do all ten have them?

If it were re-written to say 'United States Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM) is one of the ten Unified Combatant Commands of the United States Department of Defense, and is the one which controls the nuclear weapons assets of the United States military' would that be clear and accurate?

copyvio?[edit]

Much of this page appears to comes directly from http://www.stratcom.mil/organization.html. What is the copyright status?

You are correct, most of the additions made by USSTRATCOM PAO is rounding out the information there with information from our website. The website and everything on it is a Work of the United States Government and not eligible for US copyright protection. The information also cannot be copyrighted by anyone else who may use it in a copyrighted publication.

According to the Copyright Office: "Works by the U. S. Government are not eligible for U. S. copyright protection. For works published on and after March 1, 1989, the previous notice requirement for works consisting primarily of one or more U. S. Government works has been eliminated. However, use of a notice on such a work will defeat a claim of innocent infringement as previously described provided the notice also includes a statement that identifies either those portions of the work in which copyright is claimed or those portions that constitute U. S. Government material." [1]

  • The stuff that is copied is PD, but it's also POV. It needs some editing to take out the government's slant on things. Night Gyr 17:11, 2 June 2006 (UTC)
  • The history portion has been reviewed and edited. Thanks for the note. USSTRATCOM PAO 16:13, 5 June 2006 (UTC)

SPACECOM[edit]

SpaceCom should have an article to itself, instead of being a redirect here... or SAC should redirect here and be merged... 70.55.200.47 22:24, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

Removed Wikitable re: People who once worked at USSTRATCOM[edit]

I removed the wikitable because it just didn't seem to fit. I.e. sure, some of those people once worked at USSTRATCOM, and went on to become somebody significant. However, most were never the Commander, and thus while asthetically pleasing, the table just didn't seem to fit into the overall USSTRATCOM article. Also, there is already a list of former Commanders... My $.02. Regards, Warren Fish (talk) 04:33, 16 March 2010 (UTC)

NCOs?[edit]

Why is Non-commissioned officer listed in the See Also section? I can't see it has anything to do with the article at all. I'm a Brit though, so will leave citizens of the Land of the Free to make any changes. --87.114.33.77 (talk) 23:41, 1 September 2011 (UTC)

Conop section[edit]

The article briefly mentions the use of Conops to plan contingencies, and mentions Conop 8888 as a "template". The subject of 8888 is how to deal with the Zombie Apocalypse, and is used to demonstrate all functions of a well-written Conop plan. BruceWiley (talk) 15:29, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
