The Corps wants to cut tedious annual training in order to focus on lethality | Marine Corps Times

Last year Defense Secretary James Mattis ordered a review of administrative and training requirements that were bogging down the military’s ability to focus on core combat tasks.

But the Corps already has been a bit ahead of the game.

Since 2015, the Corps has cut down a number of hours in annual training requirements by changing some courses to a biennial requirement and combining other standalone courses.

And in 2017, the Corps further directed that commanders use small-unit-leader-led discussions in lieu of computer based training when possible to help reduce the slog of annual training requirements.
