Equipping the Marine

Last Revised: February 25, 2014, 2:41 pm
  • Equipping the Marine

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.

    The vision of the Concepts and Programs project is to provide political and military leaders with timely, accurate, and relevant information. The Concepts and Programs project is the premier strategic communications vessel the Marine Corps relies on to inform Congress, the Office of Secretary of Defense, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Think Tanks about the Corps’ vision.
