191014-M-IR546-0595.JPG - Marines with 3rd Assault Amphibian Battalion from 1st Marine Division participated in Marine Forces Special Operations Command's unit readiness exercise, RAVEN. The training conducted provides exposure to small unit tactics they might not otherwise receive, particularly units like 3rd AABN, whose day-to-day responsibilities are focused on amphibious assault vehicle readiness, basic formations and water ops, and terrain driving. The exercise serves as the certification exercise for a soon-to-be deploying Marine Special Operations Company. It has evolved into a multilevel venue to integrate the various command structures and capabilities deployed by MARSOC. Each level of command, down to the team, is challenged in planning and executing, and command and controlling activities in urban environments. It is also an opportunity to enhance collaboration and strengthen our operational relationships between members of the SOF community, conventional Marine Corps units and other partners with whom Marine Raiders work closely, ensuring MARSOC provides the nation with an agile, adaptive force to meet the complex demands of the future operating environment.

190812-M-IL801-0002.JPG - Retired Sgt. Maj. Carlton Kent provides opening remarks during a military resiliency event held by the Mighty Oaks Foundation at Marine Forces Special Operations Command on Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, N.C., August 12, 2019. The resiliency event was conducted by Might Oaks founder, Chad M. Robichaux, to provided information to Marines and Sailors about the Mighty Oaks Warrior Program. The program uses a grassroots approach, empowering veterans and active duty members to begin their healing and then be a positive impact on those in their surrounding communities. Through the methodologies used and the evaluation of those who have experienced combat, Robichaux and his team discovered that the same methods used to “heal” PTSD are equally effective if implemented prior to traumatic events such as those experienced in combat. Knouse, Kent, and Evans have all attended Robichaux’s program, bringing back with them a new understanding of post-traumatic stress and different tools to help combat the effects. Robichaux and his wife, Kathy, founded Mighty Oaks in 2011 with the goal to share their story through the trials of PTS and assist others along the path to recovery and success.
