|The SC MAGTF was a Strategy put forward by the Marine Corps in conjunction w/the Navy & Coast Guard to stem the tide of Global Extremism by denying them the access to Safe Havens in Failed or Failing States.
This Strategy calls for Small Detachments of Marines to be Continuously Forward Deployed throughtout Areas that are known Hot Spots & to work w/ these Failed or Failing States to promote Nation Building through the development of Strong Military ties.
Working in close Coordination w/the US State Dept, Federal Agencies, & Sister Services (Army & Air Force) these Detachments will Design & Conduct Bi & Multi-lateral Military Training Programs, Build Infrastructure (roads, schools, hospitals), Provide Humanitarian Assistance & Medical Aid.
These Small Detachments will be MAGTFs and therefore Expeditionary in Nature & Self-Sufficient. This will allow the SC MAGTF's Detachments to become the Launching Pad & Home Base for these various Governmental Agencies & Armed Services to conduct their business fr/ a well supported Expeditionary Platform leaving behind a very small footprint.
These MAGTFs are equipped similarly to a MEU(SOC) and have a paralell Work-Up Cycle and will be capable of everything fr/various Security Operations to Full-Spectrum Combat as well as the Authorization to conduct various Reconnaissance & Surveillance Missions and Limited Special Operations.
The SC MAGTF will provide this continuing presence through three main legs:
1st the Forward Deployed MEU(SOC).
2nd the yet to beformed SC MAGTF GCE; the reinforced Inf BN to be dipsersed.
3rd the Marine Corps Training & Advisory Group (MCTAG) who will be responsible for Liason, Coordinating, & Designing the Missions of the SC MAGTF along w/the HQ Element.
I'll be adding Articles involving the continuing development of this growing capability.
