Re: Carlson Raiders--Marines
Carlson's Raiders was, officially, the 2d Marine Raider Battalion, organized by Lieutenant Colonel Evans Fordyce Carlson in January 1942. President F. D. Roosevelt's son , James, was the original Battalion Executive Officer. The battalion was disbanded in February 1944 and personnel used to form the "new" 4th Marine Regiment and elements of the 5th Marine Division. Write the Marine Corps Historical Center in D. C.
