In situations where non-Air Force entities such as the Marines and Navy request such an action by the Air Force, Air Force decisions on such proposals must take into consideration the potential environmental impacts of the applicant s proposed activity as described in an Air Force environmental document, insofar as the proposed action involves Air Force property or programs or requires Air Force approval. The Air Force may require the requester to prepare an EA as was done here with the MarinesNavy, but the Air Force must independently evaluate and approve the scope and content of the EA. The Air Force has independently evaluated and approved the scope and content of the EA Amphibious Ready GroupMarine Expeditionary Unit Readiness Training April 2003 prepared by the U.S. Marines and U.S. Navy and hereby adopts the EA as an Air Force environmental document insofar as the proposed action involves Air Force property or programs or requires Air Force approval.
