QUANTICO, Va. --

Marine Corps University held a ribbon cutting ceremony Friday, Sept. 23, 2022 announcing the launch of the new Wargaming Cloud.

This capability enables individual and head-to-head wargaming options across a wide range of historical and modern scenarios. This new Wargaming Cloud provides a library of digital wargames that faculty and students can leverage to support professional military education learning objectives. By making this capability available to resident students and faculty in a Cloud environment, the games can be played from distributed locations, to include from personal devices. This creates the opportunity to integrate wargaming to a much higher degree than at any time in the past and will contribute to increased repetitions in tactical, operational, and strategic decision-making.

 “The difference with the new Wargaming Cloud is the ability to expand wargaming opportunities beyond the classroom. This offers Marines access to a library of digital games on their own time and at their own pace.” Brig. General Maura Hennigan, Marine Corps University President

Wargaming is an active and immersive learning method that challenges participants’ decision making. Players consider objectives, risks, sequencing of actions, and force employment in order to accomplish their respective missions. The players must determine which factors presented to them are most important and impactful, weigh those factors, and then make calculated decisions.

“The modern battlefield is complex and dynamic,” said Brig.

GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. This MARADMIN announces an update to reference (a) and a temporary means to update Official Military Personnel File (OMPF) records for the FY23 Sergeant Major through Master Sergeant Selection Board due to degradation of Manpower Management Record and Performance’s (MMRP-20) organizational inbox.
2. The above mentioned degradation prevents MMRP-20 from receiving e-mail submissions requesting OMPF updates. MMRP-20’s organizational e-mail will send auto-generated responses stating that the “organizational mailbox is currently full.” HQMC is working quickly to resolve the issue.
3. In response to the above degradation, Marines in the eligible population should submit their OMPF update materials directly to the Enlisted Promotions organizational e-mail at [email protected] in order to be briefed on the FY23 Sergeant Major through Master Sergeant Board.
a. Ensure the e-mail subject line reads “OMPF Update Material for the FY23 Sergeant Major through Master Sergeant Selection Board.
