Marine Corps Launches New Information Command

The commander of USMC cyberspace and space commands will head the intel force.

The Marine Corps has announced the creation of a new two-star command, the Marine Corps Information Command. Major General Ryan Heritage was chosen to lead the command on top of his current duties as the commander of the Corp’s cyberspace and space commands. General David Berger, Commandant of the Marine Corps, called for the creation of this command in his document Force Design 2030, the plan to modernize the intelligence of the Marine Corps by 2030.

“We believe that in a conflict with a peer adversary, first moves may be in space and cyber, so we must enable our Stand-in Forces,” expeditionary units and expeditionary forces “to integrate with, and have access to, those capabilities now,” General Berger wrote. “We can streamline and simplify much of the coordination burden at the headquarters level if we re-organize and refocus some of our structure.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For General Berger as he heads the U.S. Marine Corps.
  • For Major General Heritage as he adds the information command to his cyber and space duties.
  • For wisdom for U.S. military leaders as they gather, review, and disseminate intelligence information.
