Maritime Civil Affairs Group (MCAG).



US Naval Expeditionary Combat Command officially established MCAG at the Little Creek Conference Center

MARCH 2007


MCAG’s mission is to assess, plan and execute civil affairs (CA) activities in the maritime operational environment.


The Maritime Civil Affairs Group (MCAG) mission is to assess, plan and execute civil affairs operations in the maritime environment, and to support the Expeditionary and Carrier Strike Groups, Combatant Commanders, Joint Task Forces, and Navy Expeditionary Combat Command (NECC) elements in engaging the civil component to enhance the effectiveness of ongoing military operations.

Types of civil military operations supported by civil affairs forces are Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief; Non-Combatant Evacuation Operations, Refugee Operations, assistance with restoration of local infrastructure in the aftermath of military operations or natural/man-made disasters, and regional engagement activities. MCAG forces will operate from shore and afloat.


MCAG  is headquartered at Naval Amphibious Base Little Creek, with two subordinate squadrons in Yorktown, Va. and Imperial Beach (San Diego), Calif.  Reserve component squadrons are also based in Norfolk and San Diego, as well as Miami, Willow Grove, Penn., San Jose, Calif., and Madison, Wisc. Each squadron will be regionally oriented, with Maritime Civil Affairs Teams (MCAT’s) that will engage in Civil-Military Operations (CMO) in specific countries.

The Navy plans to have two squadrons of civil affairs sailors, Farabee said.

The first squadron, to be based in Imperial Beach, Calif., will be geared toward missions in the Pacific and U.S. Central Command theater of operations; the second, based in Yorktown, Va., will be focused on missions for U.S. European Command and the planned Africa Command.

The Navy plans on having all 320 sailors in the group trained and ready by September 2008, Farabee said.
