Army "Recon"

Requesting clarification--when I hear "Recon" I think "Marine Corps." Someone told me today they were a cook in Vietnam (173rd Airborne) then "Recon."

I have read about LRRPs -- and think it is Long Range Recon Patrol . . . would they have ever called themselves "Recon"?

Or is this another oxygen thief ?

Don't want to be skeptical if there is some Army division/unit/MOS or something called "Recon" that I am not familiar with. Anybody?
