Blount Island Command (BICmd) provides technical assistance to Marine Air-Ground Task Force (MAGTF) commanders for all aspects of planning, deployment, arrival and assembly, and reconstitution of prepositioned assets. Directly supporting power projection during global crises.

Located in Jacksonville, Florida, aboard Marine Corps Support Facility Blount Island, this industrial base and a robust local Navy support infrastructure provides an advantage not readily available to other sites. The MPF is comprised of two Maritime Prepositioning Ship Squadrons that carry the combat equipment and sustainment to support up to two Marine Expeditionary Brigades of roughly 18,000 Marines and Sailors each. BICmd also manages the Marine Corps Prepositioning Program-Norway and the Marine Expeditionary Unit Augmentation Program in Kuwait.
