A long range raid is a military operation that takes place on a target area beyond the horizon. The Long Range Raid requires good communication and planning with multiple combat elements in order to work successfully. It is one of those operations where a lot can go wrong, and everybody has to be on point in order to pull it successfully.
Nevertheless, when the degree of difficulty of an operation puts it on the “impossible” territory, you call America’s 911 force, you call the Marines. With this degree of responsibility in mind, U.S. Marine units practice incessantly in order to get this type of operation just right. Such is the case of Marines with Golf Company, 2nd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, who conduct a long range raid exercise in CH-53E Super Stallions during Weapons and Tactics Instructor course (WTI) at Hubbard Airfield, Fort Huachuca, Arizona. Just call the Marines.
