The Marine Corps established the Combat Hunter Program so today’s warfighters that face unprecedented challenges in an increasingly complex and hostile world can better examine ways to minimize casualties while simultaneously increasing a Marine’s tactical cunningness. The Combat Hunter Program integrates enhanced observation, combat profiling, and combat tracking skill sets in order to produce a more ethically minded, tactically cunning, and lethal Marine; a Marine better prepared to succeed across the Range of Military Operations (ROMO). Combat Hunter is the only program in the world which utilizes real-time, eyes-on intelligence developed by the Marine ‘in theater’ to identify danger and create tactical alternatives leading to increased enemy lethality and increased coalition survivability.
