The Marine Raider 

MARSOC’S MISSION is to recruit, train, sustain, and deploy scalable, expeditionary forces worldwide to accomplish special operations missions assigned by U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM). To accomplish that, MARSOC equips and trains Marines to succeed in austere conditions against a wide range of adversaries. MARSOC executes complex, distributed operations in uncertain environments, achieving silent success and strategic impact.


MARSOC’S VISION is to be America’s force of choice to provide small lethal expeditionary teams for global special operations. With tight-knit teams of agile and adaptable operators, MARSOC will continue to punch well above its weight class.

“Our most significant contributions to national security are often unquantifiable and unspoken.”

The Marine Raider Foundation is a 501(C)(3) Non-Profit Organization established in 2012 to provide benevolent support to active duty and medically retired Marines Raiders and their families, as well as to the families of Raiders who have lost their lives in service to our Nation.


The Foundation aims to meet needs unmet by the government with an emphasis on building personal and family resiliency and supporting the full reintegration of wounded, ill, injured, and transitioning Raiders, their families and MARSOC’s Gold Star Families.

"Helping those who have sacrificed the most."
