Hospital Corpsmen have a time-honored history of benevolent service and heroic prestige with the Navy and
Marine Corps team. A Recon IDC takes that legacy further. The Corpsmen of the Marine Raiders of WWII were the
patriarchs to the present day Recon IDCs. Since then, Recon IDCs have fought in “every clime and place.” Today, they continue to serve as valued team members throughout U.S. Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command (MARSOC) and USMC Reconnaissance units.
Recon IDCs have billets in MARSOC, Marine Reconnaissance BNs, and select Naval Special Warfare units.
