MARSOC Poised to Grow Despite Personnel Caps | Military.com

If the Marine Corps gets its requested 12,000-troop boost to reach an end strength of 194,000, its elite special operations command will be growing too, the commander of MARSOC said Tuesday.

And that growth could be the most significant manpower increase within U.S. Special Operations Command in some time.

Speaking to an audience at the National Defense Industrial Association’s Special Operations/Low Intensity Conflict conference near Washington, D.C., Maj. Gen. Carl Mundy III said the command needs to grow to sustain its deployment tempo and give operators adequate time at home.
