ABSTRACT
As President George W. Bush explained in a speech at the U.S. Military Academy in June 2002, U.S. security requires a military &ldquo.ready to strike at a moment's notice in any dark corner of the world. During the past year, the Marine Corps' distinguished heritage of innovation was extended further by exploring creative operational concepts, promoting new technologies, and altered organizations to provide the timely crisis-response tools the nation needs. The Marine Corps continued to play a key role in preserving order worldwide and in operations supporting the global war on terrorism. Marine units operated in diverse locations: the mountains of Afghanistan, desert locations around the Persian Gulf and Horn of Africa, and islands in the Philippines. They also maintained regular forward-presence and exercise commitments around the world, thereby underpinning U.S. national security interests.
