Expeditionary Units: 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit
The 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit is an amphibious, combined arms, air-ground task force capable of conventional and select maritime special operations of limited duration in support of a combatant commander. Capable of sustaining itself for 15 days, the MEU accomplishes these missions by functioning as a type of Marine Air Ground Task Force (MAGTF) - a combination of air, ground and support assets.
