Release No: 183-98
July 29, 1998
Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness Rudy de Leon, Department of Defense General Counsel Judith Miller, and Director of the Joint Staff Vice Adm. Dennis Blair will hold a press conference at 1:30 p.m. (EDT) today in the DoD Press Studio (Room 2E781) to answer questions concerning actions to standardize good order and discipline policies among the Services and to clarify guidance on the offense of adultery.
These actions complete the remaining two of three initiatives Secretary Cohen announced in June 1997 to maintain the effectiveness and readiness of U.S. military forces and to ensure that policies governing good order and discipline are clear and fair. The first initiative was fulfilled when the vast majority of the Kassebaum Baker panel recommendations pertaining to gender-integrated training and related issues were implemented.
