I came from a Recon unit in the corps, I was a basic 0311 dude, nothing special; and I always wondered what makes recon so sneaky? Do they practice actual techniques and methods of remaining hidden, or is it just the mindset? Is it really nothing special? Weigh in if you've got some wisdom to bestow.

Recon isn't splinter cell. Guys avoid troops formations and observe from afar using concealment techniques and high powered optics.

For a minute there I thought you were talking about avoiding their own troop formations, at which they are quite skilled at avoiding as well.......

Since you are an active duty Marine, what about vetting with us. Go to "Vetting & Requests" in the top toolbar. Read through "New Members Begin Here" to see the documentation we need to get you vetted here.
I got out last year, I'm not active anymore.
