What is MSPF btw? Is that the rapid deployment force, or is it special forces?

Btw I was 12 Bravo---combat engineer. We build 'em, the tankers wrecked 'em. When I signed up they said I would be working with heavy equipment (I thought they meant buldozers & cranes), little did I know they meant HEAVY EQUIPMENT literaly (such as slege hammers and large peices of metal railing, ect). The bulldozers and stuff was a different MOS althogether, lol. The explosives & demolitions was fun the fun part, but I kinda like my fingers so I tried not to handle any unless I had to.

Each Marine Expiditionary Unit has a small specialized sub-unit. It relies on the MEU for logistics, intel, communications, transportation, and supporting fire. It opperates under the command of the MEU commander. Its equal to the armys Special Forces. The MSPF is made up of volunteers from Force recon platoons. Each Direct Action Platoon operates along with a SEAL platoon.

They conduct several operations such as CQB, Deep reconnaissance, In extremis Hostage rescue in urban enviroments, Special Demolitions ops, Clandestine Recovery of equipment or personnel, Gas and Oil Platform Operataions (GOPLAT), Clandestine Recon, Direct action (DA), Maritime Interdiction Operations (MIO)

Theres whole lot more info on the MSPF here:
