Howwe do this is by embedding with local national forces through proper military assets. We look and effectively operate like any other Marine Infantry team, with one big difference... there are usually 12 members to a team embedded with 50+ local units; we worked with a group of 83.
Out manned and out gunned it's easy to see how this may be a tenuous situation to find oneself in, let alone volunteer for.
So what makes this group of Marines and Sailors special? TRAINING
