Is all this true about Recon Marines MOS#0321 ?
I thought Recon Marines did not do DA (Direct Action) missions. Is that true or not? Is that different during this period of time? Here is a few long paragraphs of what i found. This elite group of marines are trained to do missions by land, air, and sea infil and exfil (infiltration, exfiltration) similar to the Navy SEAL. Their primary mission is to secure and monitor their AO (area of operation) along with sending Intel to command regarding enemy POS (position) and build up. A recon marine is responsible for giving his commander instructions as to what he should do regarding the placement and advancement of other friendly/Coalition units in the AO. Where SEALS and Recon Marines are very similar is that both units execute missions by Land, Air, and Sea infil, and they carry out missions pertaining to rescue/elimination/ Identification and verification/retrieval of HVT's (high value target), HVI's (high value individuals), as well as exfil by similar methods including the use of SDV's (seal delivery vehicles - small submersible vehicles used to transport soldiers in amphibious combat operations. Both SEALS and Recon Marines main goal other than their objectives is to remain undetected. They are not so hardcore that their 4- man team can take on 500 men in their AO. Both special operations teams do everything possible to remain undetected. The reason why they have such a devastating effect in combat is largely due to their stealthy tactics, They will surround you without your knowledge, and suddenly C4 goes off, M249's and M4A1's start blasting off. But only for a few minutes, as no 4-man team can suppress a whole platoon on their own land for long, that's why they do their job effectively, in and out. Hence the Marine Force Recon motto, "Swift, Silent, Deadly". Is this also true whats in this site? http://usmilitary.about.com/od/enlistedjo2/a/0321new.htm

Sounds about like what I have heard about Marine Force Recon. I think you've got a fairly accurate article there. There isn't any team anywhere that a 4 man team can take out 500 enemy combatants unless you're using really big bullets (i.e. Naval Ship Guns) Which is an entirely different animal.

I've used that site before. I'd say it's quite reliable.

I would say it is mostly accurate, but the seals deal with under water more than any other special forces.
