As the war rages on in Afghanistan, and American troops pack up equipment and close bases in anticipation of leaving the country for good on  31 December 2014, back in the USA, budget battles reign. On yesterday’s front page of the Wall Street Journal there was a story about putting MARSOC Marines (Special Operators) on ships instead of disbanding MARSOC because it is a duplication of the Navy Seals and Army Special Forces. The Commandant of the Marine Corps, Gen. Amos came up with a way to save MARSOC, and that is to put them on ships at sea to be ready as a quick reaction force (QRF) in instances of attacks such as on Benghazi, Libya, using Osprey helicopters to insert them.

Links from around the GWOT:
