Marine Raiders are a force, expeditionary in nature, prepared to thrive in uncertain, chaotic, and austere environments, determined to excel with Spiritus Invictus – an “unconquerable spirit.”
We conduct short strikes and small-scale offensive actions to seize, destroy, capture, recover, or inflict damage in hostile or denied areas.
We acquire information about the capabilities, intentions, and activities of an enemy not normally found in conventional forces.
We prevent, deter, and respond to terrorism.
We provide training and other assistance to foreign governments and their militaries to enable them to provide for their own national security.
We support the security forces of allied foreign governments to achieve operational objectives the U.S. shares.
In concert with allied governments, we conduct military, paramilitary, political, economic, psychological, and civic action operations to defeat insurgent strongholds.
We provide expertise, materiel, and teams to support combatant commanders locating, tagging, and tracking WMD.
We support resistance movement or insurgency which may support conventional military operations.
