22nd MARINE EXPEDITIONARY UNIT

The 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit (22nd MEU) is one of seven such units currently in existence in the USMC. It is a Marine Air Ground Task Force with a strength of about 2,200 personnel. They are currently based out of Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, NC and fall under the command of the II Marine Expeditionary Force. The mission is to provide the USA with a forward-deployed, amphibious force-in-readiness capable of executing mission across the full spectrum of combat and military operations other than war. It is the most decorated of the U.S. Marine Corps’ seven MEUs.

The MEU consists of four basic elements:

Command Element (CE): Serves as the headquarters for the entire unit and allows a single command to exercise control over all ground, aviation and combat service support forces.

Ground Combat Element (GCE): Built around a Marine infantry battalion, the GCE is reinforced with tanks, artillery, amphibious vehicles, engineers and reconnaissance assets.

Aviation Combat Element (ACE): Consists of a composite medium tiltrotor (MV-22B Osprey) squadron containing transport aviation assets of various models and capabilities, attack helicopters and jets, air defense teams and all necessary ground support assets.

Logistics Combat Element (LCE): Provides the MEU with mission-essential support such as medical/dental assistance, motor transport, supply, equipment maintenance and landing is the mission of the LCE.
