MARSOC units to get Raiders name after 10-month delay
At long last, the Raiders will be reborn. An official flagging ceremony to rename Marine special operations battalions in honor of their World War II predecessors is set to take place June 19, MARSOC officials confirmed. The ceremony comes 10 months after the command first announced its plan to change the names of Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command's component units to reflect their history.
