what we do
MARSOC engages in direct action, special reconnaissance, foreign internal defense/security force assistance, counterinsurgency, support to countering weapons of mass destruction, and support to unconventional warfare.
Marine Raiders operate beyond the front lines and have a unique battlefield perspective. They quickly assess complicated situations and make intelligent decisions of tactical, operational and strategic importance. MARSOC teams are small, so each individual must be strong, mentally agile, dependable and adaptable. Every role is critical, so team cohesion and expertise are key.
