Individual Training Course students with Marine Special Operations School at Stone Bay, Camp Lejeune, N.C. participate in the field training exercise Raider Spirit. Raider Spirit is an eight-day culminating event for the first phase of ITC training, where students run light infantry scenarios as a field team. Throughout the exercise, student teams face many challenges as a result of an operationally restrictive scenario and numerous long distance foot movements with little sleep.

And for our Polish friends:
SSgt. Noe Sanchez and SSgt Juan Quintanaluna, instructors with the Marine Corps Mountain Warfare Training Center, negotiate tough terrain during a foreign training exchange with instructors from the Chilean military’s mountain warfare school, Rio Blanco, Chile. The Marines were joined by soldiers from the 19th Special Forces Group during the training, which provided the group with experience in high altitude alpine combat operations.
