The live fire exercise was conducted to prepare for a future, larger-scale range to help keep SPMAGTF-CR-CC’s Security Forces primed and ready if called to action.

This gives each GCC the three-fold advantages of forward presence: the recurring dividends available from “soft power”; deterrence derived from credible and capable response; and the freedom of action created by expanded operational reach and tactical flexibility. The Marine Corps will continue the process of tailoring our forward presence. This will enhance our ability to conduct sustained security cooperation activities and develop and maintain interoperability with partner nations, facilitate access, promote stability, deter adversaries, enhance the security of global commerce, and respond to crises as directed by the GCCs. Maintaining a forward-deployed posture to meet crisis response requirements and conduct theater security cooperation activities will require a total force effort to maintain a sustainable 1:2 deployment-to-dwell ratio for active forces and the operational use of reserve forces with a deployment-to-dwell ratio of 1:4.” (EF 21)• **Slide Construct: Numbers across the top will not add up to the total deployed. This is because some units are double counted. For example, the 31st MEU is captured in Amphibious Ops and in West of IDL numbers. The number of countries does not include MSG detachments.• West of IDL – West of International Date Line, Marines forward deployed in PACOM AO.FAST PLTSUSEUCOMUSCENTCOMUSPACOMUSNORTHCOMUSSOUTHCOMOPERATIONSAMPHIB OPERATIONSEXERCISE/TSCSOUTHCOM: ~110AFRICOM: ~1,000PACOM: ~23,500444
