134.144 Figure 14-3.-The first lines of the "Marines' Hymn," "From the Halls of Montezuma to the Shores of Tripoli," commemorate, in reverse chronological, the accomplishments of the Marine Corps in the Mexican War . . . of  readiness.  Its  units—which  include  infantry, artillery,   armor,   communications,   engineering, logistics troops, and aviation organizations—must be  completely  mobile.  The  FMF  is  the  nation’s premier force-in-readiness for all levels of conflict throughout the world. Marine   forces   within   each   FMF   are   task- organized   into   Marine   air-ground   task   forces (MAGTFs)     for     deployment     worldwide.     The MAGTF combines air and ground combat forces in a  highly  mobile  amphibious  strike  force  under  a single   commander.   All   MAGTFs   include   three elements:  a  ground  combat  element,  an  aviation combat  element,  and  a  combat  service  support element.  MAGTFs  are  task-organized  around  the ground  combat  element—a  battalion,  regimental, or division landing team—which may vary in size. For   example,   the   Marine   expeditionary   unit (MEU) numbers 1,800 marines, while the Marine expeditionary brigade (MEB) may  number  16,500 and  the  Marine  expeditionary  force  (MEF)  may number 35,000. In late 1985 the  26th  Marine  amphibious  unit (MAU)  was  the  first  MAGTF  designated  special- operations capable (SOC). (The amphibious [MAU] designator   changed   to   expeditionary   [MEU]   in 1988   to   reflect   a   broader   scope   in   missions.) Currently, all MEUs that deploy as landing forces with  the  Sixth  and  Seventh  fleets  are  designated SOC.   These   special   capabilities   include   short- notice amphibious raids, evacuation of noncombatants, search and rescue operations, and in-extremis    hostage    rescue.    Forward-deployed MEU    SOCs    provide    the    national    command authority  with  on-scene  forces  that  can  respond rapidly   to   terrorist   incidents   and   other   crises worldwide. 14-4
