USMC Future Force Posture: 2014 – 2020
The Nation’s Crisis Response Force forward deployed and poised to rapidly respond to Crises
within the arc of instability and within regions of anticipated future conflicts.
In an era of fiscal austerity, force reductions from 202K to 175K, and uncertainty associated with the “New Norm” environment, the USMC
Future Force Posture Plan thickens the forward deployed Marine force posture and provides more flexibility in employing the ARG/MEU within
each Geographic Combatant Command (GCC) coupled with an inherent reach-back capability for additional USMC CONUS-Based CR Forces
providing the NSS and Joint Staff with myriad Crisis Response options while gaining efficiencies in meeting GCC Security Cooperation and
Security Force Assistance requirements.
