Assistant Commandant Visits Reserve Artillery Unit in Texas
Gen. Gary L. Thomas, Assistant Commandant of the Marine Corps, met with Active and Reserve Component Marines attached to the 14th Marine Regiment, 4th Marine Division, Marine Forces Reserve, Sept. 23, 2021. After a tour of the headquarters and discussion with the staff, Thomas shared as the Corps invests more into longer range artillery systems to support the Commandant’s Force Design transformation, the unique capabilities 14th Marines brings to the fight with their ability to mass both Marine Corps and Army tube and rocket artillery on the enemy through the command and control capability in their Force Artillery Headquarters (FAHQ) will continue to be in demand. With units and artillery batteries spread over 11 states (something unique to the Reserve force), the regiment routinely trains to target, control, operate, and shoot in coordinated, distributed formations across long distances validating the types of missions the Marine Corps is planning for to keep a secure and free Indo-Pacific region.
