Abstract:

Within the highest ranks of the Marine Corps, the concept of operational Strategic Communication SC appears to be gaining traction SC will be a topic of discussion during an upcoming Executive Offsite Symposium. Since fall 2009, an SC capabilities development working group has produced a draft functional concept for SC and helped shape the MAGTF Staff Training Programs SC class, but a fielded long-term MAGTF SC solution will likely coincide with the JFCOMs SC Joint Integrating Concept 2016 target operational date, which offers little immediate support in response to enduring real world requirements. The time for action is past due. This paper provides an in-year, executable off the shelf MAGTF SC solution that is required to bridge the gap between 2010 and 2016. The proposed solution offers MAGTF commanders immediate leadershippersonnel, integrating solutions to meet tactical SC requirements. Furthermore, this near-term solution will inform and benefit the long-term Jointservice-level development of communication capabilities in Support of SC.
