MCRP 5-12D, MARINE CORPS REFERENCE PUBLICATION: ORGANIZATION OF MARINE CORP FORCES (13 OCT 1998)
MCRP 5-12D, MARINE CORPS REFERENCE PUBLICATION: ORGANIZATION OF MARINE CORP FORCES (13 OCT 1998)., Marine Corps reference publication (MCRP) 5-12D, Organization of Marine Corps Forces, provides general information on the mission, concept of employment, organization, and equipment of the Marine Corps forces. This publication addresses the mission, organization, equipment, and concept of employment of Marine Corps Forces Atlantic, Marine Corps Forces Pacific, and the Marine Corps Reserve, as well as subordinate organizations thereof, through 1 September 1998. However, due to the frequent changes in organization, the tables of organization will be reviewed and this publication will be updated annually. This publication does not discuss in any detail Marine Corps Security Forces, the Marine Security Guard Battalion, or the Marine Corps supporting establishment. This publication should be considered only a guide based on current Marine Corps tables of organization and equipment, and not as a replacement for those tables.
This reference publication is primarily intended for Marine commanders, their staffs, and Marine Corps training and education institutions, although all Marines may find it useful. It may also prove valuable to joint force commanders and their staffs in planning and executing operations involving Marine Corps forces. MCRP 5-12D supersedes Fleet Marine Force reference publication (FMFRP) 1-11, Fleet Marine Force Organization—1992, dated 2 March 1992.
