Every day, young men and women walk into their local Marine recruiting office with the prospect of joining the Corps. How could they not? The military knows how to make a compelling commercial or inspirational poster. The recruiter will also toss out some motivating terms like honor and respect just to wet an idealist's beak.
But there's one epic recruiting tool that helps give the individual that much needed push to make their final decision to sign up — the motivating recruiting video.
For MARSOC — or Marine Special Operations Command — the standard recruiting video takes it one step further. Their video comes with a unique narrative and badass soundtrack, and showcases a well-disciplined Marine rising out of the river in slow motion.
These small but well-trained Marine units embrace the unknown and are prepared to face any challenge. To earn a position on a MARSOC team takes a superhuman effort and the willingness to go above and beyond.
Training takes place in three different phases consisting over a ten-week period. Each stage is specifically designed to expose each the candidate's strengths and weaknesses before continuing.
The assessment and selection process mentally and physically challenges each potential team member, and completion of the course doesn't guarantee a spot on the team. Only the best make the cut.
Once selected, team members can deploy anywhere at anytime with limited notice. Their missions are secret, as well as the identities of the members.
