Javelin Thrust is the largest annual U.S. Marine Corps Reserve training exercise, with more than 5,000 Marines participating from units across the United States.

The purpose of Javelin Thrust 2012 is to prepare the 1st MEB (Marine Expeditionary Brigade) command element for employment as a joint task force headquarters while simultaneously training selected MARFORRES (Marine Forces Reserve) units as MAGTF (Marine Air Ground Task Force) subordinate elements to meet anticipated global crisis response requirements.

The exercise force for JT-12 is made up of Marines and sailors from 1st MEB; 25th Marine Regiment; Marine Air Group 41; Combat Logistics Regiment 4; and 2nd Tank Battalion, 2nd Marine Division. The 33 Canadian Brigade Group is also participating in the exercise as an adjacent coalition unit.
