Excerpt
Excerpt: Since 1775, the United States Marine Corps has served as an expeditionary force organized and trained to act in the national security interest and carry out the national military strategy. The Marine Corps’ contribution to the national defense has successfully evolved throughout its history by virtue of the ability of Marines to identify and adapt to the nation’s national security needs, often before those needs were commonly recognized. Such innovations as the seizure and defense of advanced Naval bases, amphibious operations, close air support, helicopterborne vertical envelopment tactics, maritime pre-positioning forces (MPFs), and taskorganized, combined arms forces consisting of aviation, ground, and logistic elements known as Marine air-ground task forces (MAGTFs) are prime examples of how the Marine Corps has adapted and evolved as an expeditionary force. The Marine Corps continually reviews its roles and missions in the context of an uncertain world, adapting to the changing security needs of the Nation while preserving those core values and professional capabilities that make Marines succeed in war and peace.
