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.
