In order to improve the effectiveness of the United States Marine Corps (USMC) response to future international Humanitarian Assistance/Disaster Relief (HA/DR) missions, an analysis of the demands created by such demands as well as the capabilities of the USMC is necessary. This research focuses on the primary response organization within the USMC: the Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) and those resources available to the MEU to conduct HA/DR operations. Recent HA/DR events will be examined to determine how common demands were met by the USMC as well as any gaps that may exist that should be addressed to improve future effectiveness.
