ESTABLISHMENT OF INFORMATION AS THE SEVENTH MARINE CORPS WARFIGHTING FUNCTION
The Marine Corps Information warfighting function is described as the management and application of information and its deliberate integration with other warfighting functions to influence relevant actor perceptions, behavior, action or inaction, and support human and automated decision making. The Information warfighting function helps commanders and staffs understand and leverage the pervasive nature of information, its military uses, and its application across all operational phases and the Range of Military Operations (ROMO). This function provides the Marine Corps with the ability to integrate the generation and preservation of friendly information while leveraging the inherent informational aspects of all military activities and Service level operations to achieve Marine Corps objectives.
