I don't know if any one knows who the usmc raiders are? but if you do I met a lady And her father was the man that started them!! In world war two 1st marine raiders Battalion and "Carlson's" Raiders of 2nd Marine Raiders Battalion they where were elite units established by the United States Marine Corps during World War II to conduct special amphibious light infantry warfare, particularly in landing in rubber boats and operating behind the lines. "Edson's" Raiders of 1st Marine Raiders Battalion and "Carlson's" Raiders of 2nd Marine Raiders However, despite the original intent for Raiders to serve in a special operations capacity, most combat operations saw the Raiders employed as conventional infantry. This, combined with the resentment within the rest of the Marine Corps that the Raiders were an "elite force within an elite force", led to the eventual abandonment of the experiment. In 2014, the Marine Special Operations Regiment, serving under the United States Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command (MARSOC), was renamed the Marine Raider Regiment. This change was implemented to better show that modern Marine special operations forces trace their lineage and heritage back to the WWII Raiders. Individual Marines of the Marine Raider Regiment are once again called Marine Raiders.

Any ways I thought it was cool to have the daughter of the founder of the USMC raiders give me a raiders patch its hard to get one very hard. You just don't get one im one of the few that was lucky enough to have one but I don't feel worthy of the patch they where all volunteers and KNEW THE HELL TEY WHERE GOING INTO. god bless our armed forces


thank you to all the brothers on here that have served. I respect them all of yall and the hard work yall have done to keep up free and im truly honored to have been given not a patch but the patch

For us WW II history buffs, the U.S. Marine "Raiders" are well-known. Unfortunately, their exploits typically get overwhelmed by Guadalcanal, Tarawa, etc. cheers FTRPLT
