Berger clearly told us that HE was going to change the Marine Corps. We just didn't think it would be this bad....

 Today’s Marine Corps, despite many surface adaptations to the demands of the past two decades of counterinsurgency operations, is at its core optimized for amphibious forcible entry and sustained operations ashore.

...I am convinced that the defining attributes of our current force are no longer what the Nation requires of the Marine Corps. 

The above is from "The Case For Change", Marine Gazette 2020.

I'm somewhat amazed that I missed this.

Berger told us what he was gonna do but few people took him seriously.

Side note.  This is why I consider any attempts by this "new" Marine Corps to link itself to the past to be fraudulent.  It is tossing away its past in order to remake itself into a coastal defense unit.
