Feb 17, 2009

Marines with Company F, 2nd Battalion, 4th Marine Regiment begin a raid after being placed into position by helicopter Feb. 17. The raid was the first done as part of a training evolution here Feb. 16-20. Raids are unlike most operations that the infantry Marines conduct, in that they are supposed to attack a target and conduct a planned withdrawal, rather than occupy a position. The training was done in preparation for their upcoming deployment with the 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit later this year.
