Abstract:

The charge of the Marine Corps is being ready when the nation is least ready. One of the greatest ways of fulfilling this charge is to fight wars before they can begin. The Marine Corps, along with the Navy, is by nature, postured forward to protect the nations interest and security from the sea. The Marine Corps is already developing and implementing itself to be the nations force in readiness and action in the long war, it possesses the capability and characteristics to perform in the littorals and expeditionary environments while integrating the other services and agencies. It should be the lead in doing so within the Department of Defense and along with the other departments of the U.S. Government.
