expanse of options available to joint planners in task-organizing
Army and Marine Corps forces, this publication provides two
"base cases" for a common framework discussion. These
two cases focus on the command and control (C²) of a notional
Army brigade by a Marine expeditionary force (MEF) and the C²
of a notional Marine expeditionary force (forward) (MEF FWD)
by an Army corps.
