    The 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit

    The 26th Marine Expeditionary Realism Unit




    Hello everyone !

    I am Captain Evoy, Company Commander of the 3rd Battalion, 8th Marines of the 26th Marine Expeditionary unit and it is a realism unit for Arma II : Combined Operations, based Camp LeJeune, North Carolina. We are a new unit offering many choice's of MOS so you can work with us. As in :

    - 3rd Battalion, 8th Marines, India Company
    ( The 3/8th Marines also has to offer 1 tank platoon, 1 AAV platoon and 1 LAV platoon. It also has 1 artillery battery. They won't open until we receive enough member's to allow us to open them. )
    - 26thMEU Battalion Aid Station
    - 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing

    26thMEU History:

    " The 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit (26th MEU) is one of seven Marine Expeditionary Units currently in existence in the United States Marine Corps. The Marine Expeditionary Unit is a Marine Air-Ground Task Force with a strength of about 2,200 personnel. The MEU consists of four major parts: a command element, a ground combat element, an aviation combat element, and a logistics element. Since its establishment in the early 1970s as the 36th Marine Amphibious Unit, the MEU has deployed extensively, and participated in numerous combat and contingency operations, as well as training exercises. The 26th MEU is based out of Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. " - Info taken from Wikipedia

    We work our recruits in Parris Island in South Carolina and we teach them everything that a Marine should know. We bring out the most realism as we can and we hope it stays that way as well. We will be using ACE Mod 2 and ACRE for the realism boost.

    We are a serious unit and we take everything in a serious manner. We follow every marine core value which is :

    -Honor
    -Courage
    -Commitment

    We take pride of these value's because it build's every recruit we receive into Marines.

    We are mainly focusing on infantry and corpsmen right now because our other MOS's are either full or closed for the moment. Right now we are still an Arma 2 unit but we are starting to make a very slow transition over to Operation Arrowhead. So if you still own Arma 2 and haven't found a roleplaying realism unit, then the 26thMEU is the place for you !

    Right now the only place's that we are recruiting is the 3rd Battalion, 8th Marines and our 26thMEU Battalion Aid Station ( Corpsman ). We closed the application's for the force recon, aviation, tank battalion and our combat engineer's because we wanted to fill up our infantry / corpsmen slots first because we need more men on foot. As soon as we get a high number of member's who are on foot, we will be opening at least a new MOS for some member's so transfer over to.

    Here's a small description of the following recruiting MOS's :

    Infantry:

    Infantry are the majority of the ground element in the 26th MEU, if you like to work in a small team that is part of a larger team, and use a majority of the weapons in ArmA II, this is the field for you. Being in the 3rd Battalion, 8th Marine's in the 26thMEU, you are the one who are on the front line's of every battle we face. You start the job and you make sure that the job is finished. Our Infantry is the finest Marines we have to offer with the best specialized training. Our training program for our recruits has been reconstructed by two of our own members who are real time USMC Marines. If the 3/8th Marine Infantry sounds interesting to you, you can take part of it today !

    To join the 26th MEU as Infantry, select the 3rd Battalion, 8th Marines option on your application.

    Current Status: Positions Open

    - 0300 Basic Infantryman
    - 0621 Field Radio Operator

    Corpsman:

    Corpsmen are actually part of the Navy, but the USMC doesn't have medics or chaplains, so they get them from the Navy. A Corpsman's duty is to keep his guys alive long enough to get MEDEVAC. As a corpsman, you define the following " Helping others " and " Commitment " and we take this in a serious manner because helping other's doesn't make you feel better, it make's the person you help feel better and your committed that your going to help your friend out by getting to him / her and get them back on their feet and back fighting again. If you like fighting along side Infantry in the medic role, this is the field for you.

    To join the 26th MEU as a Corpsman, select the Corpsman option on your application.

    - HM Corpsman
    - HM-8403 Fleet Marine Force Reconnaissance Independent Duty Corpsman

    Current Status: Open. Limited Spots

    The 26thMEU has new reconstructed training for all infantry, tank and personnel carrier crew member's, a newly reconstructed training map and a newly reconstructed battalion landing team.

    The 26th Marine Expeditionary unit is nothing but the best and the most committed out there for Arma 2 : Combined Operations. We have active, retired real time USMC and some US Army member's who have been deployed over seas and they came to us to learn a new experience of realism unit's and share some stories of their careers and help out with the unit. This realism unit is owned and operated by two members, Captain Evoy and Gunnery Sergeant McWilliams, who've known each other for the past 3 years, ever since the Arma 1 Demo. They both know a lot about Arma 1 and have been using the tactical knowledge in Arma II : Combined Operations with 100% success and are eager to pass it along to future members. We have a fully functioning technical team to help you with any Arma related problems.

    We can offer you the following :

    - A working Teamspeak 3 server
    - Our 20 man slot gaming server ( will increase )
    - Fully functioning website and forums
    - Very flexible training dates and hours
    - Fully functioning technical team
    - And much more !

    If you wish to request more information about the 26thMEU, come by in our teamspeak 3 and a 26thMEU member will be glad to help you with any questions. We hope to see your application in our forum's and you won't regret your decision !
