First in last out: MRF security element
Overcoming Obstacles: Marines take on Leadership Reaction CourseSalt water splashes into the faces of the 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit’s Maritime Raid Force as they cruise toward their objective aboard combat rubber raiding craft. As their suspected time on target becomes closer, each Marine quietly considers their personal tasks and how they will protect the Marine by their side. The CRRCs slow down, and they navigate through the shadows toward the building they will soon breach into. When they pull up to shore, a group of security element Marines immediately get to their positions to set up a secure perimeter around the objective. During any raid there are three main elements; assault, support and security. Marines from Battalion Landing Team 3rd Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment, make up the Maritime Raid Force security element and take care of that essential mission set.
