This book begins with an analysis of the Court during Earl Warren’s last year as chief justice in 1969, and then breaks into three chapters on the Court under his successor Warren Burger. Following these three chapters, the Court’s military law jurisprudence is analyzed during the period of Chief Justice Rehnquist’s tenure. Finally, the book concludes with an examination of the Court’s current military law jurisprudence. 26 Shaping US Military Law IV: Conclusion When placed in the context of the Vietnam Conflict, and its aftermath, as well as alongside of the political, social, and cultural forces in the United States since 1968, it becomes clear that although the justices and judges often broke into differing camps regarding national security and military policy, the federal judiciary has taken a prominent role in defining the parameters of military governance.
Rehnquist believed that the military should be unencumbered in securing its own discipline as Congress intended it do, but he never believed that the military establishment should be permitted to ignore judicial decisions pertaining to it. Indeed, contrary to allegations that he sought first and foremost to create a conservative military, he believed that the nation had to possess a highly disciplined apolitical force to bolster the nation’s allies and keep the spread of communism at bay. His approach to military law is open to criticism because in overturning O’Callahan he overturned a decision based on a poor rendition of history with an equally poor rendition, and he disregarded the honored concept of stare decisis.
Burger’s appointment reflected conservative hopes of diminishing the Warren Court’s influence, whether in the field of civil rights or criminal procedure. Burger’s tenure is divided into three chapters, one which includes the conservatives’ efforts to narrow O’Callahan, a second chapter analyzes the Court’s free speech jurisprudence in the military governance context, and its efforts to depoliticize the military. This is an important, but often overlooked aspect in the Burger Court’s jurisprudence.
