Exercise Deep Water 2020 Air Assault

If you're doing a platoon sized raid of course you're gonna grab the nearest SEAL Team or Special Forces Unit.

If you're doing company and above who would be your choice?  Would you reach for a few from the Ranger Bns?  If its an Air Assault would you reach for some bubbas from the 82nd or 101st?  Hell if its Air Assault why not the 10th Mountain or 25th ID?  Why would you choose Marines?  Would you choose Marines?

My point is that this isn't special.  Air Assaults are ordinary.  Airfield seizures are ordinary.

Everyone does it now.

When was the last time you heard Marine Corps leadership talk about seizing a port?

When you start doing what everyone else is you're ordinary, not unique...not special.
