U.S. Marine Corps Lance Cpl. Nathaniel O. Payne, a carpenter with the 4th Marine Division, holds security during Raven Exercise 6-23 in Hickory, Louisiana, June 9, 2023. Exercise Raven is Marine Forces Special Operations Command’s pre-deployment exercise designed to evaluate the readiness of MARSOC companies and teams. To assist this mission, Marine Forces Reserve regularly collaborates with MARSOC to integrate specific Reserve force capabilities like civil affairs, law enforcement, cyber, intelligence, and Air Naval Gunfire Liaison Company into MARSOC training, exercises and operational deployments. This collaboration strengthens Reserve force capabilities and informs MARSOC's efforts to enhance and operationalize their Individual Mobilization Augmentee Detachment to retain and employ Reserve Marines with these critical skill sets.
