Looks like fun and a great vid. (Last time I went off the ramp of an LPD was in a vehicle that weighed about 30 tons more than those CRRCs.) Glad to see somewhere in the Fleet the Raider tradition is being kept alive. IMO, Raider Battalions should have been brought back--complete with original name and uniform patch--when the Corps made the jump into SOCOM.

I agree. And the amphibious raid school at ewtgpac down in Coronado willl give you a whole new perspective on long cold wet nights.

From what I gather SR-25's unit is trying to recreate the spirit/TTP of the Raiders as much as they can given that the Marine Corps gets all anal about bringing back anything that might have a cool name or unconventional history. So if you want to do HSLD shit in the Corps you have to join MarSOCK --:doh: obviously no offense intended to our bros in the Sock, as it were...
