Marines rethinking methods (01/08/2014)
From: Jim Eddy

In the most recent Marine Corps Gazette, Lt. Col. Maria McMillen has an article titled “Read - Think - Win.”

Lt. Col. McMillen’s thesis is reflective of what the Marine Corps has done in times of a budget crunch. The Gazette and other Marine Corps publications are devoted to calling upon Marines to reflect on the history of the Corps and highlight the relationship of a budget challenge to the need to be innovative. Such introspection starts with calling upon Marines to review their own history, since 1775, and turn to reading and thinking with the assistance of such classics as the Art of War by Sun Tzu, Rethinking the Principles of War by Anthony D. Melver, and The Village by Bing West.

Thanks to the initiative of Lt. Col. McMillen and other Marines, the Marine Corps is following the advice given by Winston Churchil: “Gentlemen, we have run out of money. Now we have to think.”

Members of the Corps are now fully engaged within all ranks to find better methods to conduct operations related to the application of passive and active power throughout the world. This starts with following the guidance of Lt. Col. McMillen and other Marines to “Read - Think - Win.”
