Call to Action: Force Design 2030

The Corps is in the midst of a historic effort to redesign the force to meet the challenges of this new age of great power competition.  To gain an understanding of the progress to date, the force design methodology and the institutional changes required going forward read and comment on the Commandant’s Force Design 2030 report here.

Ryan Evans of War on the Rocks spoke with Berger about the recently released Force Design 2030 report to “get the inside story of these reforms, which he describes as being in their earliest phase.” According to Gen Berger  “This is not the end of the journey, but rather the beginning.” The Commandant “calls upon more voices to chime in with criticism to ensure the Marine Corps is ready for the future of war.” You can find the podcast here:
