Abstract : The Marine Corps overcame major organizational, doctrinal, training, and personnel challenges, and thus effectively established and sustained a successful transition team program in Iraq which led to mission accomplishment. When time constraints, personnel, training, and resource challenges are taken into consideration, it can be concluded that the Marine Corps effectively developed, established, and employed its advisor program in support of OIF. Most importantly, the institutional procedures adapted to support this program are enduring; pertinent orders, doctrine, and training requirements are developed; knowledge and experience are greatly enhanced throughout the force; and dedicated resources and structure are established to meet foreign military advisory mission requirements in support of future operational demands.
