As the single authority for all Marine Corps Installations Matters, MCICOM exercises command and control of regional installations commands, establishes policy, exercises oversight and prioritizes resources in order to optimize support to the Operating Forces and tenant commands.
In today’s unsettled and contested environment, one of the Marine Corps’ comparative advantages remains our global mission-focused base and station network. As the foundational platform from which the Marine Corps generates, deploys, employs, sustains and recovers ready forces, we must Be Ready to support today’s force readiness requirements while taking care of our Marines and their families. The changing national security environment and the Marine Corps Force Design efforts demand that we look beyond today and Make Ready to support the future force and if necessary to fight from the installations. This will require us to be actively engaged, innovative, adaptive and flexible to meet the requirements of those we support. I will focus on resourcing Force Design, building Resiliency, and enabling Retention of Talent.
