      Hey James,
      You do know that there’s no more 1st Force Recon Company right? And if you did you’d know that each company in 1st Recon Battalion has a “Force Reconnaissance Platoon” which is what is being featured in the video.

      Stupid fan boy without a Jack (or an EGA) running his suck from his mommy’s basement

    • CoolArrow Kicker says:

      You do know that 1st and 2nd Force Reconnaissance Companies no longer exist and that now there are “Force Reconnaissance Platoons” in each company at 1st and 2nd Reconnaissance Battalion, right? And that’s what’s being covered here, the Force Reconnaissance Platoon.

      Of course you don’t. Because you’re a fan boy who doesn’t rate a Jack or an EGA.

        Not like they’re going anywhere anyway lol. Gonna sit on Schwab and do nothing or Las Flores and do… nothing.

        Recon, cool as it is, is for A&S chaps who didn’t get selected now.

          Hey Adam…. pick a location proximal to you and I can arrange venue with 0321s for you to pitch your opinion to.

        Coolarrow, you do know that there is a Force Company in each MEF right?

        And yeah, I have a Jack, but it seems you don’t, weird right.

        • CoolArrow Kicker says:

          Uhhhh no. The Force Recon companies have been disbanded since 2006. Depending on the structure, There are Force Platoons in each Company at 1st and 2nd Recon Bn or task organized in a single company. But there is no longer a stand alone Force Reconnaissance Company. They are part of Recon Battalion.

          And boot, I remember when we fell under SRIG
