Three, 10-day exercises were recently conducted near the Gulf Coast region between MARSOC and other government agencies. This certification exercise is called RAVEN Unit Readiness Exercise, and is design for ‘soon-to-be’ deployed Marine Special Operations Companies. All deployed by MARSOC, the evolving multilevel exercise is designed to integrate all command structures and capabilities. The goal of the training is to promote teamwork, as well as focus on each individual Marine. Different members of the SOF community are also able to strengthen their relationships and collaborate on ideas.
