The article presents information about manpower requirement of the U.S. Marine Corps. With the Corps facing Iong-term operational commitments in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere, congressional leaders and critics have said the service could use a manpower boost. But the Corps' leadership has maintained that adding members is a quick-fix that would mortgage the future for short-term gains. Rather than add personnel, the Corps wants to stick with a series of solutions it is developing to meet demand. INSET: Thanks, But No Thanks.
