    Just had SWMBO from Uni High download the movie about the raid for later viewing. I remember when it was released back in the early-2000s, but never saw it.

    Admiral McRaven wrote an analysis of the raid on the tactical level in Spec Ops. It was a very impressive effort, considering infiltration was by foot and exfiltration by mules! The Filipino guerillas also did a wonderful piece of fighting holding down Japanese reinforcements.

    This is a clip of Ranger combat training. Somebody at SOFREP identified it as the 6th Ranger Bn., the unit that carried out the raid.
