4th MARDIV Marines rehearse for simulated raid during Raven Exercise 6-23
U.S. Marine Corps Lance Cpl. Jonathan N. Traynor Jr., a student with 4th Marine Division, holds security during a rehearsal for a simulated raid in Poplarville, Mississippi, June 4, 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 (ANGLICO) 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 (IMA) Detachment to retain and employ Reserve Marines with these critical skill sets.
