Marines activate Marine Corps Installations Pacific

Date Posted: 2011-10-07

The Marine Corps has realigned its operations in northeast Asia, consolidating Japan and Korea operations as Marine Corps Installations Pacific (MCIPAC).

In Japan, MCIPAC command and staff will perform the regional missions and functions previously performed by Marine Corps Bases Japan. It remains under command of Maj. Gen. Peter J. Talleri, today during a ceremony on the Building One Parade Deck, Camp Foster. Marine Corps Bases Japan, commanded by Lt. Gen. Kenneth J. Glueck, was deactivated in accordance with a decision by Headquarters Marine Corps to realign installation. Glueck remains commanding general of III Marine Expeditionary Force.

MCIPAC was established to increase regional installation management effectiveness. MCIPAC will implement policies, develop regional strategies and plans, prioritize resources, and provide services, direction, and oversight to all Marine Corps installations in Japan, the Republic of Korea, and Hawaii. As the commanding general, Talleri commands all installations in the pacific area of operations.

Installations under MCIPAC’s responsibility will include MCB Camp Smedley D. Butler, MCB Hawaii, Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni, MCAS Futenma, Combined Arms Training Center Camp Fuji and Camp Mujuk in the Republic of Korea.

“From its inception, MCBJ has been a dual responsibility of the III MEF Commander, requiring him to concentrate his time and efforts on both installation as well as his operational requirements. Today, as we deactivate MCBJ and activate Marine Corps Installations Pacific, we effectively free the MEF Commander from directing installation functions, and allow him to focus on his operational mission, secure in the knowledge that his Marines, sailors, civilians and their families have the facilities and services they need to train and deploy within the Pacific region,” said Talleri.
