MARITIME CIVIL AFFAIRS GROUP (MCAG), LITTLE CREEK, VA.
MCAG is an enabling force working directly with the civil authorities and civilian populations within a combatant commander's maritime area of operations to lessen the impact of military operations imposed during peace time and periods of declared war, and increase the impact of humanitarian response and contingency operations in support of theater security cooperation plans. MCAG forces provide assistance with the restoration of local infrastructures in the aftermath of military operations or natural and man-made disasters, and participate in regional engagement activities intended to build support for the U.S. government. Maritime civil affairs forces operate from shore and afloat.
MCAG meets a unique need in the maritime environment--operating in locations ranging from permissive to hostile, they participate in the planning and conduct of civil military operations focusing on varied areas such as major combatant evacuations, maritime security operations, humanitarian assistance and disaster relief, non--combatant evacuations and refugee operations. MCAG also coordinates military disaster response and humanitarian relief operations with non-government organizations. Further, MCAG works to deny terrorists safe-havens by assisting partner nations in extending authority and the rule of law into previously ungoverned areas.
