This tradition has continued to the present day with the current Marine Expeditionary Unit (Special Operations Capable).

Secondly, the thesis will provide an assessment of the current MEU(SOC) program, with emphasis placed on its relevance in current and future operations, as well as deconfliction with established Special Operations Forces (SOF) that fall under the auspices of the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM).
