The USMC is a truly global fighting force and serves as an expeditionary force-in-readiness. Their three primary responsibilities, as outlined in the National Security Act of 1947 are as follows:
- The seizure or defense of advanced naval bases and other land operations to support naval campaigns;
- The development of tactics, technique, and equipment used by amphibious landing forces in coordination with the Army and Air Force; and
- Such other duties as the President may direct.
Over the course of warfare, the USMC has used a series of documents and manuals detailing the items such as counter-insurgency, landing operations, and equipment manuals. These documents are important references for the USMC. The USMC needed a method to effectively track, monitor, and manage the development, updating, and publishing of these documents.
