United States Marine Corps Warfighting Publications (MCWPs) are publications that are the overarching and fundamental operational doctrine and TTP utilized by the Marine Corps in the prosecution of war or other assigned missions. Collectively, MCWPs represent the operational foundation of how the Marine Corps fights and prosecutes its missions in support of national strategy and objectives. MCWPs inform and influence the content of their aligned MCTPs and MCRPs. MCWPs may or may not be partnered with another Service. The DC CD&I or CMC is the signatory authority for all MCWPs. All MCWPs must have proponent leads within CDD. MCWPs are to be assessed for information currency and accuracy by the respective proponent lead a minimum of every 6 years.
