Marine Minute: MCDP-7
March 16, 2020 | 1:00
The U.S. Marine Corps released the newest doctrine since the late 1990s, Marine Corps Doctrine Publication 7, or MCDP-7. MCDP-7 describes the Marine Corps’ learning philosophy and explains why learning is critically important to the profession of arms. (U.S. Marine Corps audio by Cpl. Nathan Hall)

[Script]
I'm Corporal Nathan Hall with your Marine Minute.

THE COMMANDANT OF THE MARINE CORPS RECENTLY APPROVED MARINE CORPS DOCTRINE PUBLICATION 7. THIS PUBLICATION DESCRIBES THE MARINE CORPS' PHILOSOPHY ON LEARNING AND EXPLAINS WHY EDUCATION IS SO CRITICAL TO THE PROFESSION OF WAR-FIGHTING. IT STRESSES THE IMPORTANCE OF IMPROVING CRITICAL THINKING SKILLS AND DECISION MAKING.

[Soundbite]
Major General Mullen, Commanding General of Training and Education Command had this to say about the training.

"Observe, orient, decide and act. That’s the essence of maneuver warfare. That’s the essence of effectiveness in combat. This publication enables Marines to get through that process much faster than anybody else. That’s what the intellectual edge is, because if we do it faster than the enemy, as they're going through their OODA loop, they can’t compete. Because by the time they make a decision its irrelevant and if we are able to do that, nobody will be able to keep up with us."
