The Marine Corps is in the midst of implementing its Force 2025 structure changes this year, according to a message from the top Marine.

Marine Corps Commandant Gen. Robert Neller today published his "Message to the Force 2018: Execute" to give Marines an "update on where we are."

The Marine Corps is "implementing Force 2025 structure changes," modernizing the force, recapitalizing legacy systems, and "meeting mission requirements around the globe," Neller wrote.

The message also said the Marine Corps is implementing the Marine Operating Concept by adjusting training to contest a peer adversary and working to improve readiness by "adopting new processes to be more innovative, fit, educated and resilient."

Accompanying the document was a tweet by Neller imploring Marines to read and discuss the themes of his message.
