The Marine Corps’ decade-old special operations command will lead the next rotation of operators into Iraq, Marine Corps Times has learned.

Marine Raiders will head the staff element for the next iteration of Combined Joint Special Operations Task Force-Iraq, said Capt. Barry Morris, a spokesman for Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command. The unit is set to deploy early next year and will be led by a MARSOC colonel, he said.
