The Marine Corps uses an organizational structure that is specifically designed for swift deployment of forces by air, land or sea. The Marine Air-Ground Task Force (MAGTF) provides the US with a variety of response options, coordinating teams of ground, air and logistics assets under a central command. This is built to conduct a full range of operations. Because the MAGTF can be adapted, Marines are ready to fight battles around the world at a moment’s notice.
In combat and non-combat situations, the Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) is a self-contained, forward-deployed response force. Embarked aboard amphibious assault ships, each MEU maintains a constant state of readiness, enabling Marine commanders to plan and launch a wide array of missions within six hours or less.
