ABSTRACT
The article discusses the operational flexibility between the Army and the Marine Corps in the U.S. Procurement of equipment and weapons, and training are the areas where operational flexibility should be more. At the tactical level, joint employment of units should also be reached by changing the way their forces are supplied and trained. Logistic support between both services is essential. A realistic degree of interoperability between common resources of the two services is required.
