Marine Corps Force ReconMarine Force Recon units are very similar to that of Navy Seals. Their training is very similar and since the Marines are a unit in the Navy they train alongside the Seals at occasion. The main difference comes in when it comes to their missions. Recon's mission involve more reconaissance and surveillance which are known as the green side missions. The other type of missions are ITG like Air Force Commandos and Direct Action(a Seal specialty.) Also because Force Recon's main job is to conduct recon they tend to operate further inland the the Seals. A lot of the times they work alongside the normal marines to help with prepatory action.
