Notes
Joint Chiefs of Staff Franklin D. Roosevelt



Under the U.S. Constitution, the President of the United States is the Commander-in-Chief of all military forces. At the time of the attack on Pearl Harbor, Roosevelt exercised this power through the service chiefs, but the need for better interservice cooperationprompted the establishment of the Joint Chiefs of Staff as a formal body on 9 February 1942.
United States Navy
Harold R. Stark
Joint Chiefs of Staff

Stark was Chief of Naval Operations. This was initially distinct from Commander, U.S. Fleet, who was Kimmel. The offices were merged under King later in the war.
Pacific Fleet Husband E. Kimmel Pearl Harbor United States Navy

Kimmel was officially Commander, U.S. Fleet, but had effective command only over the Pacific Fleet. This confused command arrangement was resolved by making King both Chief of Naval Operations and Commander, U.S. Fleet, and making Nimitz Commander, Pacific Fleet.

Asiatic Fleet
Thomas C. Hart Manila United States Navy

Responsible for patrolling U.S. possessions in the Far East. With no unit larger than a cruiser, it could not possibly stand up for long against Combined Fleet, and in fact the Philippines had been effectively written off in Navy pre-war planning. With the destruction of MacArthur's air power on the first day of the war, Hart withdrew all his forces except for submarines and some small units. This created lasting bitterness in MacArthur towards the Navy.
