The Marine Raiders were elite units established by the United States Marine Corps during World War II to conduct amphibious light infantry warfare, particularly in landing in rubber boats and operating behind the lines. However most combat operations saw the Raiders employed as regular infantry, and combined with the resentment within the Marines that the Raiders were a "Marine Corps within the Marine Corps," led to the abandonment of the experiment.
Our USMC Raiders patch is a regulation, full color, embroidered military patch. This is the same patch that is supplied to the Marine Corps and sold in the Marine Corps Base Exchanges. This patch would be a great gift idea and a wonderful addition to your patch collection.
