From 11 September 2001 through July 2005, the Marine Corps activated over 36,000 Reserve Marines, and more than 95 percent of all Marine Forces Reserve units were activated in support of the Global War on Terrorism GWOT. While supporting the GWOT, MARFORRES has made changes to the individual combat clothing equipment ICCE fielding process and has significantly enhanced its capability to support the reserve training centers RTCs which outfit the deploying reserve Marines however, there is a better process to outfit them with required ICCE prior to deployment. Reserve Marines should draw complete sets of ICCE from the GFC Consolidated Issue Facilities CIFs to streamline the issue process, improve property accounting, and save money.
