Near Okinawa, the USS Ohio and Force Recon Marines undertake uncommon training.

Force Recon Marines performed an unusual exercise with the USS Ohio off Okinawa at the beginning of 2021. A specific number of submarines in the Navy are equipped with “lock-out trunks.” Using the lock-in and lock-out procedure, operators can enter and exit a submerged submarine without being noticed by hostile sensors or eyes. “As the standby force in the first island chain, Force Reconnaissance Marines must be deployable,” stated Major Daniel Romans. The commandos must be very cautious with their air levels and ensure that the trunk air does not contain excessive carbon dioxide. An excessive amount of gas may generate bubbles that an adversary’s sonar can detect. Under these circumstances, errors may cause convulsions, hypoxia, decompression sickness, and disorientation, according to Galvin. In 1942, the Marine Raiders became the first American military force to launch a submarine-borne raid when they attacked Makin Island in the Pacific. Navy SEALs and Army Green Beret combat divers are often linked with submarines. However, there is a lengthy history of Marine special operations personnel using submarines for exfiltration and infiltration missions.
