Since the inception of the “MOC Concept” more than a decade ago, during both real world operations and major exercises, the Navy has demonstrated an increased ability to plan and execute at the OLW. However, budget constraints and the need to be forward and ready to fight both now and into the future have forced Navy and Marine Corps leaders to re-evaluate priorities and strategy. As such, one might question whether or not the Navy remains committed to institutionalizing the MOC Concept.
