Critical Tasks and Issue Areas to Develop the Future Force

The MOC identifies five critical tasks and details associated issue areas to guide our effort to change how we organize, train, equip and sustain the Marine Corps to operate and fight in the 21st century. The scope and scale of the implied changes are not trivial; they cut across the Marine Corps as an institution. The tasks associated with these changes require us to come to terms with new missions, acquire and master new capabilities, and evolve or create organizations. The tasks are actions to achieve specific objectives.


1) Integrate the naval force to fight at and from the sea

2) Evolve the MAGTF

3) Operate with resilience in a contested-network environment

4) Enhance our ability to maneuver

5) Exploit the competence of the individual Marine
