To The Guillotine
On 1 February 1944, it became official that the character of the war had so changed that Raider Battalions were no longer needed (doesn’t that have a nice ring to it?).
The 1st, 3rd, and 4th Raiders became the 1st, 2nd,and 3rd Battalions of the Fourth Marine Regiment while the 2nd Raiders became the Weapons Company. Again establishing the old China Regiment that had fought and lost at Corregidor. The Raiders believe they have left a legacy for those coming after us and that is why this web site exists.
