Marine Corps reduces annual training by cutting these requirements
Philip Athey

The Corps will no longer conduct an annual training class asking Marines to quit smoking or dipping.

In fact, several annual training requirements have been consolidated or eliminated to “enable commanders to focus on events that generate warfighting readiness,” according to an administrative message published Thursday, which announced the changes.

“Fleet Marine Force (FMF) commanders consistently ask for more time to train to core warfighting tasks (Mission Essential Tasks),” Marine spokesman Capt. Sam Stephenson told Marine Corps Times in a Tuesday email. “This has been a consistent theme from the FMF, formally expressed in Defense Readiness Reporting System reports, and consistently discussed at TECOM subordinate command and Headquarters Marine Corps forums.”
C.S. Lewis: “I dread government in the name of science. That is how tyrannies come in.”
