Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command (MARSOC) is showcased training in this outstanding mashup from Moura Graphics.
MARSOC is the Marine Corps special operations group. They are responsible for a variety of missions to include: Direct Action, Special Reconnaissance, Preparation of the Environment, Security Force Assistance, Counterterrorism, Foreign Internal Defense, and Counterinsurgency.
They were born from Force Recon in 2006, but should not be confused with the group as they fall directly under SOCOM. Their missions generally place them in irregular and unconventional settings.
The following information was taken off of the MARSOC webpage.
MARSOC’s mission is to recruit, train, sustain, and deploy scalable, expeditionary forces worldwide to accomplish special operations missions assigned by U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM). To accomplish that, MARSOC equips and trains Marines to succeed in austere conditions against a wide range of adversaries. MARSOC executes complex, distributed operations in uncertain environments, achieving silent success and strategic impact.
MARSOC’s vision is to be America’s force of choice to provide small lethal expeditionary teams for global special operations. With tight-knit teams of agile and adaptable operators, MARSOC will continue to punch well above its weight class.
