The mission of Marine Security Guards is to provide protection to mission personnel and prevent compromise of national security information and equipment at designated diplomatic and consular facilities. Marine Security Guards will be prepared to execute plans for the protection of the mission and its personnel as directed by the Chief of Mission (COM) or Principal Officer (PO) through the Regional Security Officer.
Congress expects the Marine Corps to be more forward deployed and to demonstrate that it's a crisis-reaction force.
Marine Security Guards do just that.
