Maj. Gen. James F. Glynn takes command at MARSOC | Dvids

Since Glynn is taking over, he will be responsible for leading the command as well as manning, training, and equipping the Marine Raiders under him. Some members of MARSOC are currently deployed in different regions and he will also have to lead them. MARSOC was created in 2006 to be the Marine Corps service component. According to Dvids, “When I think of MARSOC, I always think of SOCOM’s Sparta. When you look at this force, it is 2% of our budget from SOCOM, 6% of our manpower, conducting over 10% of SOCOM’s missions globally. It’s a great payback for what we put into it. Much of it is the human capital invested…the great Marines represented out here on the field,” said Clarke.
