HURLBURT FIELD, Fla. - Marines with Echo Company, 2nd Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment, and U.S. Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command, capture a role player identified as a notional high value target during a partner nation force training exercise at Hurlburt Field, Fla., Aug 17 – 27. The Marines of 2/8 joined forces with MARSOC to strengthen the process-driven capability integration process between Special Operations Forces and the Marine Air Ground Task Force and to increase the Marine Corps’ and MARSOC’s ability to partner with foreign counterparts to advise, train and assist allied security forces. In addition to partner nation force training, 2/8 Marines learned specialized techniques used by MARSOC to conduct short strikes and small-scale offensive actions to seize, capture and recover critical information and high value targets and persons of interest.
