Why a separate general ledger for the Military Services' Exchanges?

in accordance with Section 2783 of Title 10, U.S.C. and DoDI 1015.15, the DoD Components are required to jointly establish and maintain a uniform chart of accounts and common financial reporting procedures for the Military Services’ exchanges.   The standardized chart of accounts is updated and submitted jointly by the Secretaries of the Military Departments to the ASD(M&RA) by October 1 of each year.
