MARINES HEADED TO MIDDLE EAST!

p1308199

There has been a plan in place since 2013 to put a Special Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force Crisis Response Central Command in the Middle East. It might cause people to wonder if this 2,300 strong force could be the reason why President Obama is not sending any other ground forces to Iraq. The main reason for the unit is as a special crisis response unit for US Central Command.

Most of the 2,300 Marines who will make up Special Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force Crisis Response Central Command have already arrived in the Middle East, said Lt. Col. Joseph Kloppel, a spokesman for Marine Corps Forces Central Command.

Kloppel said the first deployment rotation for the task force included the following units:

  • Command element, 5th Marine Regiment, Camp Pendleton, Calif.
  • 2nd Battalion, 7th Marines, Twenty Nine Palms, Calif.
  • Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron 363, Miramar, Calif.
  • Marine Aerial Refueler Transport Squadron 234, Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Fort Worth, Texas

Aircraft attached to the unit will include, among others, MV-22B Ospreys from VMM-363 and KC-130 planed from VMGR-234, a Reserve unit. The task force will also include a tactical aviation squadron, Kloppel said, but he declined to identify the squadron as it was in the process of arriving in the Middle East.

Fifth Marine Regiment commanding officer Col. Jason Bohm will command the task force, Kloppel said. Most units will be deployed for six or seven months, he said, although the regimental headquarters may see a longer rotation.

Use of the SP-MAGTF

While there is a SP-MAGTF based out of Spain called SP-MAGTF Crisis Response Africa, this one will be based out of Kuwait and be called SP-MAGTF Crisis Response Central Command. They will be able to move any place in a very short order. There has been no mention of them and ISIS in official circles.
