Military administration refers to the internal government within a particular country’s armed forces.
The term military administration was used to identify the techniques and system of state agencies involved with managing the armed forces. It’s concerned with the processes that take place within military organisations outside of combat, such as managing military personnel, their training, and the services they are provided as part of their time within the military.
It effectively serves the same role as public administration in the civil society, but just within the military services, and is often viewed as being a source of bureaucracy in the government as a whole. As it is widely applied across the military, it is often qualified by certain areas of application, such as logistics administration, administration of doctrine development or military reform administration.
Military administration can also be described as the organisation, management and execution of all military affairs not included in strategy and tactics - the term primarily applies to manpower, personnel services and logistics.
