I Marine Expeditionary Force

The I Marine Expeditionary Force is a Marine Air Ground Task Force of the United States Marine Corps composed of the 1st Marine Division, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing, 1st Marine Logistics Group. It is based at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton. I Marine Expeditionary Force is the largest of the three MEFs in the Fleet Marine Force and is referred to as the "Warfighting MEF" for its consistent involvement and contributions in major armed conflicts, it is presently commanded by Lt. Gen. Joseph Osterman; the deputy commander is Brig. Gen. Rick Uribe. Pronunciation of the Roman numeral designator: As a Roman numeral the capital letter "I", representing one, is properly pronounced as "One." However, there are some who erroneously pronounce the number as either "First," or either intentionally, or unknowingly, pronounce it as "Eye," as in the letter "I." The convention of using Roman numerals to designate a MEF, itself the Marine Corps equivalent organization to an Army corps, stems from the U. S. Army practice that began in the American Civil War, continues today, of numbering corps with Roman numerals.

Corps, themselves being the first-level sub-unit of a "field army," or a numbered, or named, army. During the First World War, the 4th Marine Brigade, as part of the U. S. Army 2nd Infantry Division, came under the U. S. Army I Corps, American Expeditionary Forces. With the expansion of the Marine Corps to six divisions and five air wings during the Second World War, the Marine Corps created two "Amphibious Corps," I Marine Amphibious Corps and V Amphibious Corps, continuing the custom begun by the Army. Modern Marine Expeditionary Forces, or MEFs continue the U. S. Marine Corps legacy as corps-equivalent organizations designated by Roman numerals; when directed, I MEF deploys and is employed as a Marine Air Ground Task Force in support of Combatant Commander requirements for contingency response or Major Theater War.
