ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the importance of manpower reallocation and planning in the U.S. Marine Corps. Long-range planning and reallocation of manpower from noncombating jobs to warfare has become instrumental in helping the U.S. Marine Corps manage its biggest operational challenge since Vietnam: deploying large numbers of Marines to Iraq and Afghanistan in 2003, redeploying to Iraq, and handling contingency operations in Haiti, Liberia and Djibouti. Corps officials and defense analysts said that difficulties faced by the Marine Corps in sustaining its current tempo has less to do with people and more to do with equipment and maintenance.
