Marine Air Ground Task Force (MAGTF)

Last Revised: February 28, 2017, 11:19 am

The MAGTF is our Corps’ principal organizational construct for conducting missions across the Range of Military Operations (ROMO). The MAGTFs provide Combatant Commanders (CCDRs) with scalable, versatile expeditionary forces able to: assure allies, deter potential adversaries, provide persistent United States presence with little or no footprint ashore, and respond to a broad range of contingency, crisis, and conflict situations. We are a balanced combined arms force package containing command, ground, aviation, and logistics elements. A single commander leads and coordinates this combined arms team through all phases of deployment and employment. Our MAGTF teams live and train together, further increasing their cohesion and fighting power.
