Abstract : We've done so much with so little for so long that we now can do anything with nothing. Although the author of the above statement has long been forgotten, Marines have used the quote for so long that we often believe it. With the current international political environment reflecting a reduced threat from the former Soviet Union and a growing trend towards reduced military force levels, whatever force remains must be efficient and very capable. The challenge to the Corps and our sister services is to ensure that as our forces are reduced, we maintain the technological edge and acquire only those equipments that have demonstrated enhanced capabilities. The attached appraisal of our Marine Corps' aviation assault support potential, and what our vision for the twenty-first century is, addresses these critical challenges.
