WASHINGTON — Defending the Pacific region requires seamless integration between the U.S. military services, but that requires a joint force concept aimed at deterring near-peer competitors across all domains, according to military leaders in charge of strategy and concept development, who spoke Sept. 4 at the Defense News Conference.

But creating a joint concept isn’t easy.

The services currently have their own war-fighting concepts. The Army, for instance, developed the Multi-Domain Operations concept set to become doctrine. The next step is to evolve MDO into a joint concept.
