Abstract:

The Army and Marines have a long and proud history of aiding each other in the defense of the nation. In the continuing Global War against Terrorism, they will continue to fight and work together at a lower tactical level than ever before. However, certain preconditions must exist to make this successful. The two services need to coordinate their logistics and acquisition procedures. They also need to use joint training and joint billets to increase their understanding of one another. These institutional changes will not only make life easier for the tactical commander, but also will increase combat power, and that increases the chances for victory.
