ABSTRACT
Since the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, antiterrorism (AT) has become a growth industry. The Navy Department's principal AT capability resides in the Marine Corps Security Force Battalion, with forces arrayed across the U.S. and overseas under the operational control of naval commanders. Marines now guard key naval installations, provide security for vital national assets, such as special weapons and diplomatic missions and augment security for naval assets, such as vessels in high-threat areas and nuclear-powered submarines during refueling.
