Operational Unit Diagrams

What if the US Army decided to go commando and lose the hierarchy and structure? For example, embrace some egalitarian, collaborative, cooperative ideation amongst soldiers? Simple answer: the army would be no more. Without a command structure, there would be chaos and a complete failure of mission. If this is just one foundational expectation we have of the organization in which we entrust the security of our nation and regions beyond our borders to . . . then why do we try to run everything "in house" and domestically differently? How does one go "missional" while not being "missional"?
