The mission of the Marine Corps Intelligence is to provide commanders at every level with seamless, tailored, timely, and mission-essential intelligence and to ensure this intelligence is integrated into the operational planning process. Because Marine forces are employed primarily at the operational and planning process. Because Marine forces are employed primarily at the operational and tactical levels of war, Marine Corps ntelligence activities are oriented toward that level of support. Accordingly, two-thirds of all intelligence Marines serve in the operating forces, with the majority assigned to the staffs and units of tactical command.
As the Marine Corps Intelligence Community grows to support the Global War on Terrorism, capable and qualified Marines are needed to fill personnel requirements.
The Intelligence MOSs have the potential of increasing by as many as 300 billets over the next 4-5 years.
The Intelligence Community needs lateral movers to fill these critical billets. Lateral moving into an intelligence MOS provides an excellent way for a Marine in another career field to continue their service while gaining valuable training and experience as an Intelligence Professional.
