    Yes, the Executive. The Department of Defense is a cabinet-level department headed by the Secretary of Defense and contains the Dept. of the Navy (and Marine Corps), Dept. of the Army, and the Dept. of the Air Force. The Coast Guard falls under the Dept. of Homeland Security which is also a cabinet-level department of the Executive branch.

    The executive!


    secretary of defense

    they are both advised by the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the National Security Advisor

    Edit: The Coast Guard only falls under the Department of Homeland Security during peace time. Durine war time it falls under the Department of the Navy which is where the Marine Corps falls under.

    i think executive because the President is the Commander in Chief

    Well the commander in chief is the President so I guess it would be the executive.

    The President is comander in Chief, However Congress funds the military. The President can declare war but it may not be funded by Congress... Like what happened a few years ago.
