The 17th Marine Expeditionary Unit (SOC) is a ArmA 3 tactical realism unit based on a Marine Corps Marine Expeditionary Force (Special Operations Capable). We are a active, disciplined, and professional group that strives to excel in stressful and challenging environments. As a Realism unit we strive to maintain a high level of immersion during operations and training not only in our attitude but also with the vast array of maps, mods, and game modes.
New Recruits will start by attending Basic Training. Basic Training is a short course that makes sure the member has basic knowledge and can function within the unit. Basic Training is a 1 day, 2 hour class. After a recruit completes Basic they will begin the School of Infantry (SOI). The School of Infantry is a 3 day course that teaches Navigation, Tactical Comabt Casulty Care, Patrolling, Vehicle Operations, and Military Operation in Urban Terrain (MOUT). Once SOI is completed new members will be slotted into their selected postion. If the new member has selected a specality role within the unit this is when they would begin training in that role, unless the selected billet is unavaliable. If the new member selected the MARSOC route they would have to prove themselves as infantrymen untill a Assessment and selection date.
Our Unit is based on a Marine Expeditionary Unit (SOC). We currently have Infantry (1st Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment) as our Battalion Landing team, Marsoc (Marine Raider Team 8234) as our Maritime Raid Force, and a Air Combat Element (HMH-466 Wolfpack, HMLA-369 Gunfighters, and VMFA-323 Death Rattlers).
We train every Friday at 8 P.M. Central, and have operations every Saturday at 8 P.M, and have non mandatory operations every Tuesday and Wednesday at 8PM. Central. Currently we are only recruiting people that are 17+ years of age. If you are interested in applying join us on our teamspeak at 17thmeu.teamspeak3.com, or at our website.
