Computers, nuclear propulsion, and high-technology alloys have replaced wood, tar and canvas in the fleet. Information warfare, precision strike, and expeditionary maneuver operations are the new missions that use these tools. Aside from special operations forces, visitation, boarding, search and seizure personnel, medical cadre attached to the U.S. Marine Corps units and combat aircrew, most sailors support combat operations with transportation and long-range fires. In 2000, former Commandant of the Marine Corps James L. Jones initiated the Modified Marine Corps Martial Arts Program to prepare Marines for challenges of the 21st century battlefield.
