This group of men is based off of the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit out of Okinawa, Japan. We currently have approximately 15 members from the ages of mid 30's to late teens. The Unit (not clan) has been around since September 1, 2005 and has played Battlefield 2 before Armed Assault. We are currently in the process of moving all of players to this new game.
Our Unit is set up like the real 31st MEU in that we have infantry, air, and logistical operations. Our Infantry section of our Unit is the 2nd Battalion/1st Marine Regiment with a 2nd Force Recon Co. Attachment. In the Force Recon attachment we have a Scout Sniper Platoon. Our main infantry in the 2/1 is mixed of infantry and armor support. Our Aerial portion of the Unit is the Marine Air Group-36 (or MAG-36). In that it has two divisions, one division for all of our chopper operations Medium Marine Helicopter Squadron 265 (or HMM-265 rein.; "Dragons") and the VMA-311 ("Tomcats") for the fixed wing, vertical flight attack squadron. The Unit is headed by 2ndLt. Mabes and 1stLt. Dickerson. The final section of the Unit is the Combat Logistics Battalion-31 (or CLB-31). This section of the Unit is where all of our training is coordinated and posted on our forum. A few NCOs and officers will coordinate the training from the 2/1. The CLB-31 is only for logistical purposes and plays no part in gaming.
Now the information that is really important to new prospective members is, "How do I join up?" Well it's as simple as going to our forum at, 31st MEU(SOC) Maritime Contingency Force and registering. After you register a name (your LAST NAME), look through the enlistment steps in the "enlistment" section and follow them.
You will have to complete a 2 week trial period of casual gaming with the Unit to be accepted into our training program. The training program is based off of that of the Marines' called Marine Corps Recruit Training (or MCRT). This will be a one day, two hour program designed to get any prospective member into the Unit smoothly with no problems in the transition. Following MCRT each member will then complete a 2 day training program called the School Of Infantry (or SOI). You will learn basic combat maneuvers in a fire team, squad, and platoon size, communication procedures, logistical Unit information, weapons familiarization, and the chain of command.
Once joining the Unit all members will have the ability to gain rank within the Unit and learn detailed information about the military and its strategies and overall tactics. Once gaining rank members will have the ability to move to different parts of the Unit and take command of other members. Competitions with other Units or clans will warrant medals and accolades which will be awarded by the command staff. Never again will you want to join another clan or play lone wolf. This Unit will change your gaming experience once and for all!!!
