1100-mile Kill/Capture Drill
11 March 2012 Amphibious Reconnaissance Marines, Force Reconnaissance Marines and infantry Marines of Battalion Landing Team 1st Battalion, 4th Marines, all from the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit, conduct a long distance raid from the deck of the USS Essex to Camp Fuji. The raid covered 1,100 miles one way, and involved the mock capture of a high value target. (And no, its not Mos Eisely)
Now 1100-miles is one heck of a littoral….
