Abstract:

The Army as part of its strategic mobility program ASMP recently launched its Army Reserve -3 program AR-3 to preposition a heavy brigade afloat. AR-3, as the Marine Corps Maritime Prepositioning Force MPF, is designed to give the Army a rapid entry capability into a theater of operations. This study analyzes why the Army is prepositioning a heavy brigade afloat while the Marine Corps already has a preexisting program that provides for crisis response.
