Marine Corps Commandant Gen. Robert Neller has said the service branch plans to add assistant squad leaders to its units to lead the flight of unmanned aerial vehicles, Federal News Radio reported Tuesday.

Scott Maucione writes Neller told an audience at the Center for Strategic and International Studies that the Marine Corps will still be comprised of 24 infantry battalions but the structure of the battalions could change.

“What’s inside those infantry battalions is going to be a little bit different, but not fundamentally different,” said Neller.

“We want to make sure we maintain the capacity and capability of our Marine infantry battalion and that any changes to that are first ‘Do no harm,’ but it will be different,” Neller added.

Nuller did not divulge further information but noted that the service branch considers various models and options, Maucione reported.
