Marine officers can take the role in "MAGTF, Marine Air-Ground Task Force," which is the basic structure for all roles in the Marine Corps. MAGTF is separated into four main elements; ground combat, aviation combat, logistics combat, and the command element. These elements are the basis for conducting all the Marine Corp's operations.

Officers in the ground combat element of the Marine Corps are in charge of leading troops to repel conflict and seize terrain in many different parts of the world. Many leaders and enlisted men are needed to accomplish these missions. Officers need to be highly skilled in the art of fighting on land and making the right decisions for their troops.

The main task of a Marine Officer is to lead other Marines. They lead the enlisted Marines in their MOS, or military occupational specialty. "MOSs are divided into three specialties: Ground, Air and Law." When a Marine Officer finishes their first tour of duty, they can chose to become leaders inside or outside of their job position.

Marines require the ability to respond to conflict around the world as quickly as possible. Amphibious Assault, Amphibious Raid, Reconnaissance and Surveillance, and Tactical Recovery of Aircraft and Personnel are a few of the missions that Marines carry out. The marines response is split into three categories which include air, land, and sea.

The "MAGTF" portion of the Marine Corps are mainly separated into three main categories; ground combat, logistics, and aviation. They need to be ready for any action that occurs on land, sea, and air. Officers play the main role as team leaders and are essential to the success for a platoon.

Members of the United States Marine Corps are trained to perform a variety of tasks. Officers will have different tasks than those of the enlisted personnel. Officers are trained to use their leadership to manage troops for carrying out military operations. They use their professional services while in the military. These might include medical, engineering and science, and the operation of vehicles. "Also, there is about a total of 249,849 active officers in all five branches of the US military compared to the 1,162,825 active enlisted personnel."
Sean Lane's comment, February 18, 2014 10:01 AM
The Marine Corps focuses on controlling and eliminating threats in various regions around the world. More military personnel is needed for the emerging global conflicts and threatening events happening around the world. "About 155,000 personnel must be recruited each year to replace those who complete their commitment or retire." Even with the United States not having a draft, they are still able to obtain the right amount of personnel through volunteers.
Sean Lane's comment, February 20, 2014 9:16 PM
Combat officers in the Marine Corps specialize in actual military operations. They serve as leaders to their enlisted personnel as well as operating many types of equipment. Certain warfare varies between naval, air, and land. "Officers can be in charge of armored assault vehicles, artillery systems, special operations, or infantry units."

An officers performance in training can greatly affect their initial base assignment. Location causes the first assignment to differ within the career field. Future assignments can be given by the assignment officers in the Marine Corps. They work primarily with a specific group of officers for a certain job.
Sean Lane's comment, February 20, 2014 9:12 PM
An officer's individual skill set reflects on their specific career choice. An officer's performance in their career match will decide on a senior career assignment. The senior positions provide the officers to perform at their highest of abilities.
