Green Berets jump out of Marine Corps helicopter (B-Roll)


Is it just me or does it appear that SOCOM has supplanted Marine Infantry in conducting Expeditionary Advanced Base Operations?

I have yet to see even a company of Marines much less a battalion involved in these EABO exercises.  SOCOM however is all over the place.

Perimeter security is it I guess.

From the supported to a 3rd tier supporting role.

Marine Infantry is dying.

Quite honestly for the roles envisioned (at least from what I'm seeing) you can use Army MPs.  Not much use for infantry when all your attacks happen over the horizon, your concept relies on remaining undetected and there is no ability or desire to engage in close combat.
