Recon Marines are JTF (Joint Task Force) with SOCOM though they report directly to MARSOC (Marine Special Operations Command). Because of all of the Intel flowing in to thes…e organizations, they must be separate. These organizations make COMS (communications) with each other at all times in order to inform ground operators of the current situation. Almost all of the time in ground combat operations, MARSOC, SOCOM, and NATO (National Atlantic Treaty Organization) will be working together in actions labeled as either JTF or CAX (Combined Arms Exercises). The MOS name being Reconnaissance Marine MOS#0321. This elite group of marines are trained to do missions by land, air, and sea infil and exfil (infiltration, exfiltration) similar to the Navy SEAL. Their primary mission is to secure and monitor their AO (area of operation) along with sending Intel to command regarding enemy POS (position) and build up. A recon marine is responsible for giving his commander instructions as to what he should do regarding the placement and advancement of other friendly/Coalition units in the AO. Where SEALS and Recon Marines are very similar is that both units execute missions by Land, Air, and Sea infil, and they carry out missions pertaining to rescue/elimination/Identification and verification/retrieval of HVT's (high value target), HVI's (high value individuals), as well as exfil by similar methods including the use of SDV's (seal delivery vehicles - small submersible vehicles used to transport soldiers in amphibious combat operations. Both SEALS and Recon Marines main goal other than their objectives is to remain undetected. They are not so hardcore that their 4-man team can take on 500 men in their AO. Both special operations teams do everything possible to remain undetected. The reason why they have such a devastating effect in combat is largely due to their stealthy tactics, They will surround you without your knowledge, and suddenly C4 goes off, M249's and M4A1's start blasting off. But only for a few minutes, as no 4-man team can suppress a whole platoon on their own land for long, that's why they do their job effectively, in and out. Hence the Marine Force Recon motto, "Swift, Silent, Deadly". For example, an ORP (objective rally point) is set so that when an HVT is eliminated or Intel is retrieved (whatever the case), the operatives can get in and out as fast as possible remaining undetected without carrying all of their non-combat gear. By hitting the enemy so fast and hard, their reaction forces cannot reach the area of conflict in time, that's if the target can even make COMS before dying. Once the objective is executed, the small group will make its way back to the ORP to gather their excess gear and as well to rest (because sometimes, you have to run 6 miles through the forest to get a safe distance from where their previous engagement). After all of this, they make their exfil and come back home.

The Australian SASR special forces. It is almost impossible to pass the 21 day selection course and if you do there is a further 18 months of training before you become a SAS …Trooper. The SAS soldiers train many other special force units including the US Navy Seals. The mission success rate of The Australian SASR is 100%.. Turkish Special Forces.also known as maroon berets. here in my county (germany), the annual competitions between the special forces including greece austria belgium holland germany and france,Turkey won it. Nato doesnt do it anymore after turkish special forces 3 years consecutively winning the competition with the highest score. The World Key Lock Record: 7 seconds and i reserched and talked with many journilist friends to make sure about them and what i heard is their goverment doesnt let even have a website. i heard from my older brother who is one of german special forces n joined the paracros 2005 special forces competition. - The Trust Shot is part of their exercised on the last month of the training and is to ensure that soldiers can trust eachother with their lives in every situation in operation.it consist of two members fires of squad standing next to the paper targer boards while another special force fires on targets with a handgun while walking towards them from 15 metres(49feet) away. the interesting thing is during the exercise the soldiers standing next to the targets are not allowed to move or wear Body Armor.(only turkish special forces exercise the trust shot in the world) There are three categories of education and training that a MaroonBeret will undergo. These are a) Domestic b) International c) Specialty Within these three categories, there are 47 different subjects. Domestic training takes 72 weeks of basic training; International training takes 10 to 52 weeks of specialized training in different countries. It takes 3.5 years to become a MaroonBeret. what an interesting story again i heard from my brother who went to ankari in 2004 (Turkey Capital City), only their military zone has no security and safe wires.it looks like perfect easily accessible military zone where nobody can still enter. don't be fooled by the american movies. if you cant get any information instead of getting all you need while surfing on internet about special forces such as u.s british etc.. , doesnt it make the first one more special at least? funny truth..
AFSOC's headquarters is located at Hurlbert Field, which is part of Eglin Air Force Base, in Florida.
Marine Force and Battalion Recon report to Marine Special Operations Command (MARSOC) with their reports and requests. SEAL's report to Naval Special Warfare Command (NSW…C), as well as SOCOM depending on if they are JTF with NATO forces. Every branch of the military that has special operators report to their own branches command centers. NATO forces communicate with US forces through SOCOM . Though Marine recon reports to MARSOC, they are Joint Task Force (JTF) with SOCOM forces, the reason for the separate command centers is because of the large quantities of Intel flowing in everyday. The Marine Ground Task Force (MGTF) already produces enough Intel and reports, the Recon Marines main goal is to provide Intel and tactics as to how a commanding officer should use his forces based on enemy positions (POS) and/or build up, so try to imagine how much information must be processed by the Marines alone.. It's staggering. Though they are separate, they make COMS (communications) with each other on a daily basis due to information that is collected by a unit through one command that might compromise a plan of action that the other command wants to execute or has been in course already. I disagree with the previous posting. First of all Bn RECON and Force RECON DO NOT report to MARSOC. Bn RECON elements answer to their respected Marine Division (MARDIV) the Force Recon Company used to fall under the Marine Expeditionary Force (MEF) however, has been restructured under the Recon Bn. Force Recon/Bn Recon/MARSOC Operators are all 0321's, RECON Marines. However the selection for a non-0321 Marine to move into MARSOC is greatly different than taking a RECON indoctrination. MARSOC now falls directly under The Special Operations Command (SOC) as where Bn RECON is a Marine Corps asset that is directly task-able by Marine Corps leadership. The previous author also spoke of a MGTF... It is called Marine Air-Ground Task Force a MAGTF. But to answer the question that was posed, in a sense Force Recon Marines are apart of SOCOM, they are just labeled MARSOC instead of Force Recon. Force Recon Platoons are attached to the MEU, or Marine Expeditionary Units. You will find many Marines that are part of Force or MARSOC and some will say that they still do the same function: Long Range Recon, HAHO, HALO, DA missions. etc, and others will argue that MARSOC is a more elite unit than force, and Force could argue that MARSOC is a bunch of glorified operators. Regardless of the Marines stand point, the men of Force and MARSOC are first class operators and I have the upmost respect for all of them. Force Recon / MARSOC Marines would go head to head, and beyond any other branches' "Special Forces".
JSOC is the Joint Special Operations Command and encompasses all of the special ops units in the United States military, including those from Air Force, Navy, and Marines. JSO…C includes the Navy SEALs, the group credited with killing terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden on May 1, 2011.

How does Command and control help the Joint Force Commander and staff integrate synchronize and direct joint operations?
The Command and control helps the Joint Force Commander and staff integrate, synchronize, and direct joint operations. It helps with intelligence, movement, and protection.
It depends on what type of position you are talking about. If you are asking about an operational position, you would need to spend time as either a Navy SEAL, Army Ranger or …Special Forces, or Air Force Special Operations, before being chosen to join one of these branches' Tier One units, such as US Army Delta or US Air Force 24th Special Tactics Squadron. However, not everyone within JSOC is an operator. They also have a lot of support personnel, who help gather and analyze intelligence to assist the guys in the field. That is another way to be a part of JSOC, if you can't be in an operational position.

If the operation is relatively small in scale a Joint Force Commander may assign a naval officer as the Joint Force Air Component Commander.?
Joint Force Commanders will normally assign a(n) officer the responsibilities of Joint Force Air Component Commander (JFACC) to coordinate air operations in a Joint Operation Area.?
Answer - Air Force, as per:. Joint Publication 3-30, . Command and Control of Joint Air Operations, 10 February2014: . "The JFC will normally assign JFACC responsibilities …to . the component commander having the preponderance of . forces to be tasked and the ability to effectively plan,task, . and control joint air operations. However, the JFC will . always consider the mission, nature, and duration of the . operation, force capabilities, and the C2 capabilities in . selecting a commander." . component commander is another way ofsaying the commander of a unit with in the military service type(Army, Navy, Marine, Air Force, et cetera) .
