The Individual Marine is the heart of our Corps and is trained, educated, and equipped to operate across the broadest spectrum of missions and tasks. Marines are optimal in crisis response and are equally capable in global engagement, irregular warfare, or responding to larger worldwide threats.
Marine Ground Combat Forces are staffed with disciplined, highly trained, well-educated, and superbly led Marines who thrive in uncertainty, exploit chaos, solve complex problems through simple means, and take prudent, ethical, and decisive action. Our Marines’ armaments are superior weapons and equipment that enhance a shared understanding of the battlespace and enable rapid and coordinated action. We remain committed to equipping our Marines with the most advanced and capable equipment available.
