Battalion Recon, also called Marine Division Recon, carry out ground and amphibious reconnaissance for the Ground Combat Element of a deployed Marine Air Ground Task Force (MAGTF) such as a Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU). They are highly trained in small boat operations and closed-circuit rebreather and SCUBA operations.
