Expeditionary Energy: A Marine Corps Perspective

"“Lightening the MAGTF,” in the words of the Marine Corps Commandant, General James F. Amos, is “a measure aimed at reducing the size, weight, and energy expenditure of our forces from the individual rifleman to wholesale components of the MAGTF.” In his March 2011 report to Congress, “The posture of the United States Marine Corps,” General Amos stated that the Corps is leading the development of expeditionary energy solutions for the Department of Defense and the Department of the Navy, “reducing energy demand in our platforms and systems, increasing the use of renewable energy, and instilling an ethos of energy and water efficiency in every Marine. Our priority is force protection-saving lives by reducing the number of Marines at risk on the road hauling fuel and water. We also aim to help Marines travel lighter and move faster through the reduction in size and amount of equipment and the dependence on bulk supplies.”
