This excerpt from MCDP-1 provides a framework for the organization of the operating forces. Engineers in 2d Marine Logistics Battalion are being permanently assigned to the Marine Expeditionary Unit MEU, Combat Logistics Battalions CLBs, rather than being temporarily assigned for workups and deployment. The current situation is to assign engineers to the CLBs as if they were a permanent command and do not report back to their parent command at anytime. The MEU CLBs need to be organized for deployment and then adapted for peacetime. The 2d Marine Logistics Group MLG should revert to its previous practice of returning engineers to their parent commands upon completion of a deployment to alleviate imbalances in manning, equipment, and training.
