|Career Marine Regional Studies Program (CMRS)
This was the Program that I wrote about last yr that was just a concept in development at the time, it has now begun implementation.
This is the program that will require All Marines E5/Sgt & Above to be assigned to study the Language, Terrain, and Culture of 1 of 17 Micro-Regions (previously 24) around the world to eventually become Regional Area Experts over a period of 6-10 yrs.
Just like MCMAP, this program counts towards Promotion and is designed to shape Career Progression in the Corps.
Also like MCMAP it's a comprehensive Course of Study designed more to weed out the Non-Hackers & raise the ability of the Corps as a whole than to put a Bruce Lee & UN Ambassador in every squad.
