Marine Raider Support Group

The Marine Raider Support Group (MSRG) is a component of U.S. Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command (MARSOC). The enablers of the MSRG provide vital support to MARSOC in a number of areas:

  • Logistics

The MSRG consists of around 400 Marines, sailors and soldiers. They deploy with Marine Special Operations Companies (MSOC). The MSRG includes:

  • 1st Marine Raider s Support Battalion (1st MRSB)

Aside from their MOS-specific training, MSRG Marines are taught common warfighting skills at the School of Infantry, where they undergo a Special Operations Training Course which prepares the Marines for deployment alongside special operations forces. Such training includes patrolling techniques, urban warfare, use of foreign weapons, enhanced marksmanship and information operations.
