Why Does The Marine Corps Not Have A Dedicated Opposition Force?

I was idly paging through the February issue of the “Marine Corps Gazette,” which focused on military innovation. I wasn’t seeing much until I got to page 53 and saw that question: Why does the Marine Corps not have an opposition force?

That’s a dang good question. OPFORs teach units memorable lessons but don’t charge for them in blood. Being in an OPFOR is also a great way to train small unit leaders to think innovatively.

This house resolves that the Marine Corps should indeed have an OPFOR.
