Who we are

The Marine Corps is the nation’s expeditionary force, ready to respond to any crisis, anywhere. Marines have always fought our nation’s small wars, its irregular wars - the wars of the future. Marine Raiders are Marines first, and they build on their Corps’ legacy: Raiders go forward to win the war before it starts.

MARSOC’s mission is to recruit, organize, train, equip and deploy task-oriented, scalable, expeditionary Marine Corps Special Operations Forces worldwide to accomplish special operations missions assigned by the Commander, U.S. Special Operations Command (CDRUSSOCOM) and/or Geography Combatant Commanders (GCCs) via the Theater Special Operations Command.
