The Marine Forces Special Operations Command has announced a plan to move 900 Marines, Sailors, and civilian employees to Camp Lejeune by the end of 2022. “MARSOC has been pursuing numerous lines of effort to increase performance, efficiencies, and capabilities in support of the 2018 National Defense Strategy’s imperatives to build a more lethal force and reform the department for greater performance and affordability,” commented MajGen Daniel Yoo, MARSOC Commander. All MARSOC personnel will be consolidated to the same location from 1st Marine Raider Battalion and 1st Marine Raider Support Battalion. These efforts are designed to create an environment more conducive to training, overall readiness, and communication.
