You haven't "proved" anything except that you are trolling.

Again, you are showing you lack of knowledge on the subject. OODA loop doesn't only apply to an individual. It applies to any two-sided conflict; individual or large military formations.

I was in V1/9 (The Walking Dead) when it was inactivated, we became V2/1...same base.....same barracks.....same Marines....only difference was that we could no longer wear the black PT shorts for unit PT.

Again, it isn't my "supposed rule" it is USMC doctrine.

You need to learn what 'task organized' means. Then try to not show your ignorance on this subject.

If you'd been including the USMCR, then the numbers would be 33 (24 active and 9 reserve), 11 (8 active and 3 reserve), and 4 (3 active and 1 reserve).
Read and learn for once:

You have shown absolutely nothing concerning the subject of this thread. The only thing that you have shown is a complete lack of basic comprehension of what the Marine doctrine is and how Marines operate.

Again, no matter how many times you type that crap in this thread, it still isn't my rule, it's doctrine.

I answered the OPs question, you have decided to come on the thread and troll on a subject that you have no idea about. Go find some more internet links, but if you really want to understand the Corps, enlist, pick up a rifle and follow your Fireteam Leader.
