If you have ideas on how to improve the Marine Corps, the MEF wants to hear them! We need the best and brightest to help the Marines remain relevant and innovative into the future.

As part of this effort, III Marine Expeditionary Force is hosting the Big Ideas Challenges. For those bold enough to influence the course of history, now is the time to speak up. No topic is off limits. 

Submit a one-page document and include three sections:

  1. Problem
  2. Solution
  3. Contact information, including name, rank, EDIPI, and unit.

Email your submission to by Sep. 15.

The MEF will explore the most promising ideas and will send the top proposals to Headquarters Marine Corps.

Most importantly, your idea may leave a lasting impact on the Marine Corps and improve our ability to fight and win as the nation’s force in readiness. Now is the time to make a difference.
