Books on American Military Culture

I'm on a project discussing American Military Culture that requires me to rely on secondary sources.  I desperately need some articles or books regarding the U.S. Army's move to develop a distinct "Warrior Culture" since 2001, but also discussions of the unique cultures of the four branches of the American armed forces.

Here's what I've got so far, but as anyone who reads the list will see, it has gaps.  I'm more than open to suggestions to fill in or replace items.
