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 these 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. ( Full Answer )

US Special Operations Command (SOCOM) is a Unified CombatantCommand (all major combat branches have forces within thiscommand). They are in charge of overseeing all of the SpecialOperations Commands of each of the branches (ie. MARSOC, AFSOC,etc.). It was created after Operation Eagle Claw failed, w…hichinvolved units that had never trained and operated together before.One of SOCOM's main roles is to coordinate joint efforts betweenspecial operations units of different branches. For example, ifSEAL Team 3 and the 1st Ranger Battalion were going to perform anoperation together, SOCOM would be in charge of overseeing theoperation, not USASOC(Army) or NSWC(Navy), respectively.

What is the difference between Marine Force Recon and US Marine Corps Forces Special Operations command?
MARSOC was established on Feb 24 2006 and is part of USSOCOM, United States Special Operations Command. MARSOC is 1 of the 5 Special Forces part of SOCOM. AFSOC, ASOC, MARSOC, NAVSPECWARCOM, JSOC MARSOC trains, organizes, equips, and when directed by CDRUSSOCOM deploys organized Marine Special Oper…ation Forces worldwide in support of combatant commanders and other agencies. As far as I know Marine Force Recon is separate of SOCOM, but prior to FEB 2006 most current MARSOC team members were part of Force Recon.

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 A…ustralian 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..

How did lessons learned in operation enduring freedom contribute to improve joint air support to ground forces in oif?
One must have a competent opponent in order to validate military doctrine and equipment. And the last time that was done was in the skies over North Vietnam, when US airpower developed "Wild Weasels" and other countermeasures against anti-aircraft defenses; along with super-sonic aerial jet combat c…oncepts and weapons such as the TOP GUN school at Miramar California or the USAF's RED FLAG aerial combat schools (which reintroduced the old traditional "dog-fight" for fighter pilots). True, the US Army finally got the chance to deploy it's much vaunted "combined arms" (air land battle) doctrine against Iraq during Operation Desert Storm in January and February of 1991. But that turned out to be just target practice (in the military the correct term is "live fire exercise") the slaughter became so bad, that President Bush Senior had to order a stop to it (as he watched the "Highway of Death" on CNN). Iraq was by no stretch of the imagination a competent enemy! There entire air force fled into Iran (and that was their enemy! They just finished fighting an 8 year war with them in 1988). Operation Enduring Freedom is not a war against Afghanistan, nor is it a war against any Army, Marine Corp, Navy, or Air Force in which to learn anything new. What is new, is the Global War on Terrorism. This is requiring special talents & skills (and weapons) and new procedures (doctrine, tactics, strategy) which will have to be learned. In the 1990s the US Military lost it's traditional role of being strictly a military force. This was due to the collapse of the USSR and the end of the cold war. In order to save it's job, the military had to accept LAW ENFORCEMENT duties, consequently, the US Military is now part Policeman, part Soldier. Iraq and Afghanistan are law enforcement functions; finding terrorists, and either arresting them or terminating them. ( Full Answer )

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 (NSWC), 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". ( Full Answer )
Which procedure isolates the search area prevents the escape of individuals and protects the forces conducting the operations?
In law enforcement; cordon off the area, separate into teams then commence searching operations. Nothing leaves or enters the cordoned off area, thus it is secured and sterile (for evidence). In the military; Blocking forces are used to prevent an enemy retreat or withdrawal at their avenue of marc…h (route of movement) then closing forces are used to RIF (Reconnaissance In Force) or to close with the enemy (engage) then destroy them. The primary difference between law enforcement and the military (during war) is: Law Enforcement is to capture & the military is to kill. Clue (Hint): Law Enforcement Officers are PEACE Officers.

What is an example where at least 2 forces are operating but the object they operate on is not moving?
when any object is not moving there is at least two forces acting on it.....there are actually probably more. think of a ball....if one force is "pushing" it from behind and another force of the same strength is "pushing" it in the other direction from the front....then the object can't move.
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. JSOC includes the Navy SEALs, the group credited with killing terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden on May 1, 2011.
It depends on their job. If you are talking about the guys on the ground, they are called Special Tactics Airmen. The specific jobs for them are Combat Controllers, TACPs, and Pararescuemen. All Combat Control Teams are AFSOC units. Only one TACP unit is with SOCOM - 17th Air Support. The rest belon…g to Air Combat Command, or ACC. Pararescuemen, or PJs, deal with personnel recovery and MEDEVACs. They are placed in either the Rescue Squadrons under ACC or the Special Tactics Squadrons under AFSOC. Some PJs and CCTs are also with JSOC as part of 24th Special Tactics. ( Full Answer )

Underground is the element of an insurgent organization thatconducts operations in areas denied to other elements.
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 U…S 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. ( Full Answer )
They all have extensive training in urban warfare. There is no single SOF unit that has more training than another in this area. Every combat unit goes through MOUT, or Military Operations in Urban Terrain, training. The type of operation within the urban setting would determine which unit is sent t…o perform it. If they needed to rescue hostages, then they would most likely send Delta. If a helicopter crashed, then Air Force Special Tactics would go in. DevGru would most likely go if a high-value target needed captured or killed. Lastly, if an certain location, such as an enemy hideout or airfield, like Operation Rhino in Afghanistan, then the 75th Rangers would probably be sent. If a large scale city, like Fallujah in Iraq, needed to be siezed, then multiple units would be sent. When Fallujah was siezed, Navy SEALs and Delta operators were mixed in with Marine units to act as counter-snipers. Delta was also involved in the operation that killed Uday and Qusay Hussein, Saddam's sons, during the siege in Mosul, Iraq. ( Full Answer )
Who is responsible for amphibious training of all forces assigned to joint amphibious operations in accordance with joint doctrine?
The Dept of Navy is responsible for amphibious training of allforces assigned to joint amphibious operations in accordance withjoint doctrine.
No. However, there is a nugget of truth in the question. In 1979, the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan in an attempt to annex it to Soviet Union. The United States saw this is an opportunity to make the Soviets have a quagmire to rival the American mess in Vietnam. As a result, the CIA provided tra…ining and equipment to Islamist Afghan Rebels called Mujahedin. The Mujahedin were able to fight a long guerrilla war against the Soviets and compel their withdrawal by 1989. It was at this point that the CIA also withdrew its personnel and funding, leading to the collapse of Afghanistan. The Mujahedin were later reorganized after the Soviets left by their leader, Osama bin Laden, into Al-Qaeda. They were granted protection and safe harbor by the Islamist Taliban Government of Afghanistan that emerged in 1991. However, they were never trained by US Special Forces nor did this training happen during Operation Desert Storm in 1991. ( Full Answer )
