USMC Medical Capabilities RADM Richard Jeffries Medical Officer of the Marine Corps VANGUARD Symposium 10 February 2009 UNCLASSIFIED/FOUO QRM January 2009 Report The Road Ahead: Interagency Operations The Departments vision is to support maturation of whole-of-government Approaches to national security problems Conducting Stabilization and Reconstruction Operations Today, military forces are conducting a wide range of civil-military operations and activities and have performed these missions for more than a century A better understanding of how civilian-military efforts must be mutually supportive and when operations should transition between military-led and civilian-led activities. ref: NSPD-44 and Title 16 of the 2009 NDAA UNCLASSIFIED/FOUO USMC VISION 2025 The Marine Corps of 2025 will fight and win our Nations battles with multi-capable MAGTFs, either from the sea or
in sustained operations ashore. Our unique role as the Nations force in readiness, along with our values, enduring ethos, and core competencies, will ensure we remain highly responsive to the needs of combatant commanders in an uncertain environment and against irregular threats. Our future Corps will be increasingly reliant on naval deployment, preventive in approach, leaner in equipment, versatile in capabilities, and innovative in mindset. In an evolving and complex world, we will excel as the Nations expeditionary force of choice. UNCLASSIFIED/FOUO Strategy Objectives for 2025 Focus on the Individual Marine Improve Training and Education for Fog, Friction, and Uncertainty Ensure Amphibious Force Levels Meet Strategic Requirements
Expand Persistent Forward Presence and Engagement Create Joint Seabasing Capabilities Lead Joint/ Multinational Operations and Enable Interagency Activities Maintain A Ready and Sustainable Reserve Build and Deploy Multicapable MAGTFs
Posture for Hybrid Threats in Complex Environments Reinforce Naval Relationships A national imperative - Strengthening the MAGTF for employment across the ROMO UNCLASSIFIED/FOUO USMC Core Competencies The Corps conducts persistent forward naval engagement and is always prepared to respond as the Nations force in readiness. The Corps employs integrated combined arms across the range of military operations, and can operate as part of a joint or multinational force. The Corps provides forces and specialized detachments for service aboard naval ships, on stations, and for operations ashore.
The Corps conducts joint forcible entry operations from the sea and develops amphibious landing force capabilities and doctrine. The Corps conducts complex expeditionary operations in the urban littorals and other challenging environments. The Corps leads joint / multinational operations and enables interagency activities. UNCLASSIFIED/FOUO 5 Capstone Operational Concept Using the Commandants Vision and Strategy as a preface, this anthology presents our Capstone Operational Concept followed by a family of operational concepts. Collectively, they provide a bridge from the national strategy and overarching naval concept to service-specific operating concepts and envisioned capabilities. LtGen Amos, DC CD&I
Focused on - Defeating Hybrid threats and challenges Enhancing the MAGTFs flexibility, agility, and adaptability Enabling Marines to think faster decide faster- act decisively Increase the ability of the rifle company to conduct the full range of missions Describes four operational imperatives necessary to win - Seabasing Persistent forward presence and engagement Agile and adaptable forces Multicapable across the ROMO UNCLASSIFIED/FOUO
(2 of 6) 6 Assumptions That the Marine Corps will remain a Multicapable Forcerelevant across the range of military operations (ROMO) That geographic CCDRs will have a greater demand for Marine forces to conduct theater security cooperation That CENTCOM drawdown and 202K growth will allow a more balanced presence throughout the globe That current initiatives will enhance the Marine Corps irregular warfare capability and capacity That Agreed Implementation Plans (AIPs) are implemented with Marine Corps recommended changes That funding and authorities will be aligned to support Marine operations in support of CCDR theater campaign plan requirements 7 UNCLASSIFIED/FOUO
