Way of Life
MARSOC is a way of life
Just like being a Marine, being a Marine Raider is a way of life. The mission is important and ever-changing. It can be a big commitment. If your Marine is considering a move to MARSOC, you may have some questions. With preparation and good communication, your family can adjust to and thrive in the Marine Raider community. Below are some basic facts about Marine Raider family programs:
A team that takes care of its own.
Marines are our most important resource. As a Marine Raider, you’ll recieve world-class training to prepare yourself for deployments, including dealing with stress. Your physical, psychological, and spiritual needs are looked after with a cadre of fitness trainers, nutritionists, medical personnel, psychologists, social workers, and chaplains dedicated to your total well-being.
MARSOC makes it clear that each spouse is not only an asset, but essential to their service member’s career. The communication is amazing and an abundance of resources are offered to us to help our families stay healthy physically and mentally. MARSOC really does value every family as a whole and each member individually.”
Support for families
Families are a critical part of the team. As a MARSOC family, you’ll have access to a robust network of Family Readiness Officers (FROs) and volunteers who provide support for your new way of life. As a spouse, you may find yourself taking on new responsibilities. Trust your ability to keep yourself and your family happy and healthy while your Marine is serving, and take full advantage of the tools and resources available to you.
