2/8 Marines join forces with MARSOC to enhance partner nation force training capabilities

A CH-53 Sea Stallion from Heavy Marine Helicopter squadron 464 inserts Marines with Echo Company, 2nd Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment, and Critical Skills Operators with U.S. Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command into a helicopter landing zone during a partner nation force training exercise at Hurlburt Field, Fla., Aug 17 – 27. The Marines of 2/8 joined forces with MARSOC to strengthen the process-driven capability integration process between Special Operations Forces and the Marine Air Ground Task Force and to increase the Marine Corps’ and MARSOC’s ability to partner with foreign counterparts to advise, train and assist allied security forces. Throughout the 10-day training evolution, Marines with 2/8 played the role of a notional partner nation force, while MARSOC Critical Skills Operators and Special Operations Officers advised, trained and assisted 2/8, increasing both MARSOC’s and 2/8’s ability to advise, train and assist partner nation forces throughout the globe.
