As chairman of the JCS (1970–74), Moorer served President Nixon and defense secretaries Laird, Richardson, and Schlesinger. Bombing and mining campaigns against North Vietnam (which he championed), “Vietnamization,” strategic arms limitation talks, conventional force cuts, the end of Conscription, and two Middle East crises highlighted his term.
Following retirement, Moorer remained active in research and industry, notably as senior adviser at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.
