The Marine Corps in Times
of Tight Budgets and a Changing World:

A Conversation with
Lt. Gen. Kenneth Glueck

The US military faces the challenge of
re-defining its missions and roles in an environment of strategic uncertainty
and fiscal constraint. The officer in charge of managing that collision of
strategy and resources for the Marine Corps is Lt. Gen. Kenneth Glueck,
Commanding General of Marine Corps Combat Development Command.

The Stimson Center’s Russell Rumbaugh held a conversation with Lt. Gen.
Glueck about the Marine Corps’ ongoing efforts to realign its organization
and capabilities to meet the security challenges of today and the future and
the Corps’ recently released strategic vision, Expeditionary Force 21.
