In "Envisioning Strategic Options," LtCol Frank G. Hoffman, USMCR (Ret.) and Col G. P. Garrett, USMC (Ret.) lay out some alternative Marine Corps structures to stimulate a debate. The authors note that "the current service guidance and literature reflect an effort to institutionalize lessons learned from the past decade and a strong interest in getting back to sea." The paper analyzes different force designs that produce different capability/capacity mixes aligned with the projected drivers of the future strategic environment.
