Who makes up these names? The Editorial Staff could totally do that job:

A special operations company from MARSOC will launch from Navy ships and augment larger Marine missions at [Operation] Bold Alligator this year as the Corps embraces a concept that has elite forces and fleet Marines working in tandem.

About 56 operators from 1st Marine Special Operations Battalion, out of Camp Pendleton, California are involved in the large-scale amphibious exercise, which runs along the East Coast and inland, said Capt. Barry Morris, a spokesman for MARSOC.

Given that the name of the vessel is the USS Spearhead, and Marine proclivities generally, I'm surprised the name abbreviates "B.A." instead of "B.S."
