| Official Web site

The U.S. Pacific Command (USPACOM) was established as a unified command on Jan. 1, 1947, and is the oldest and largest of the U.S. unified commands, incorporating the former Far East Command and much of the Alaskan Command. Added responsibilities were assigned on Jan. 1, 1972, for military forces and elements in the Indian Ocean, Southern Asia and the Arctic and the area of responsibility was further expanded May 1, 1976, to the east coast of Africa. Since then, the contiguous waters have been transferred back to U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) and U.S. European Command (EUCOM) -- and subsequently to U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM). The west coast of North America has been reassigned to U.S. Northern Command (USNORTHCOM).
