The Marine Corps must get smaller to get better, commandant says
The Marine Corps needs quality over quantity, according to the service's top general. That's what's behind a newly proposed move to shrink the size of the Marine Corps by more than 2,000 leathernecks next year. The plan, which Commandant Gen. David Berger said he was considering last year, was formally laid out in the Marine Corps' 2021 budget request. It proposed dropping the Marine Corps' congressionally authorized end-strength from 186,200 personnel to 184,100.
