Abstract:

The Marine Corps is changing its mix of equipment at Marine Corps Prepositioning Program Norway MCPP-N to address the U.S. European and U.S. Africa commands strategic and theater-specific operational requirements. U.S. European Command s posture plan identifies MCPP-N as a key program that can respond to contingencies. While U.S. Africa Command plans that refer to a need to access prepositioned equipment do not specifically identify MCPP-N as an asset to meet that need, both Marine Corps and U.S. Africa Command officials stated that MCPP-N has served and can continue to serve as a global support asset to meet combatant command requirements. The Marine Corps reported that it routinely uses MCPP-N equipment sets to support European and Africa training and exercises.
