On June 12, 2019, Marine Raiders carry a combat rubber raiding craft in preparation for the boating portion of the annual Marine Forces Special Operations Command 2019 Marine Raider Competition on Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville, North Carolina.

The competition consisted of six teams of six participants each hailing from 1st Marine Raider Battalion, 2nd Marine Raider Battalion, 3rd Marine Raider Battalion, Marine Raider Training Center and 2nd Marine Reconnaissance Battalion.

The competition fosters camaraderie, tests participants’ operational capabilities consistent with special operations missions through a rigorous evolution of events, and honors Marine Raider heritage.
