Crisis Response

Institutional Innovation in the United States Marine Corps

By Ben FitzGerald, LtCol Brian Bruggeman and USMC

As the United States Marine Corps prepares to celebrate its 240th birthday, Ben FitzGerald, director of the Center for a New American Security Technology and National Security Program, and Lieutenant Colonel Brian Bruggeman, a former Senior Military Fellow at CNAS, have released a new report, Crisis Response: Institutional Innovation in the United States Marine Corps. The report examines how the U.S. Marine Corps successful met then-Secretary of Defense Robert Gates’ and Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus’ 2010 challenge to adapt from a “second land army” to become a vital crisis-response force-in-readiness component.
