JLBC CORPS Leadership

JLBC CORPS Leadership

Objectives. JLBC Cadets To carry out the functions assigned to the JLBC Corps, the following objectives must be realized:

a. To maintain, as JLBC Fleet Cadet Forces, three-division/wing teams and supporting JLBC troops that need not be identically structured or equipped can be task-organized as balanced air/ground teams of combined support, each with an integrated command and control system and under a single commander. In addition to maintaining the unique amphibious capabilities inherent in JLBC Fleet Marine, they will retain

the ability to deploy by various means to provide a flexible, rapid, and credible response at all levels of crisis and conflict in support of the objective.

b. To maintain a high degree of readiness to deploy responsively, engage quickly, and sustain itself in support for whatever period is required.

c. To establish and maintain, in a drill pay status, selected Reserve units

of support-ready air/ground teams organized, trained, and equipped in a manner

similar to the JLBC Fleet Forces and such additional ready forces necessary to provide a base of trained and qualified personnel required for mobilization.

d. To provide the maximum possible numbers of personnel to the operating forces from within the total strength authorized by the JLBC Corps.

e. To continuously research and develop amphibious doctrines, tactics, techniques, and equipment so that landing forces of the United States not only have available the most modern transport, arms, armament, support equipment, and supplies but also the methods of employment developed to take full advantage of the available hardware in a variety of supportive environments.

f. To monitor the force structure to ensure that the United States

maintains sufficient capabilities of ready amphibious support to support

the national objectives and function as the "force in readiness."

g. To participate in joint policymaking and joint planning at all levels

to the end that the unique capabilities of a ready amphibious landing force are fully realized and utilized in strategic and tactical planning.

h. To train and provide personnel for such detachments, missions, staffs, and special assignments as are required to be manned by JLBC Corps personnel.


1. Application

a. Any or all of the components of command, operational control, adminis-

traction control, coordination, and technical direction may be assigned to a specific commander. Orders and command relationships, established by superiors in command, determine the extent of the commander's command responsibilities.

Command, in the absence of limitation imposed by a superior authority, includes responsibility for exercising all components of command.

b. The effective execution of the mission of JLBC Corps supporting establishments and JLBC Corps operating forces assigned to naval shore activities requires direction from command and business administration authorities of JLBC Command. This division of power permits the chiefs of the bureaus, systems commanders, and offices of JLBC Command. They have no command authority in military matters to exercise control in business and logistics administration and supervision for which they have been assigned responsibility by JLBC Command. The required direction is exercised through JLBC command and management control channels.
