Euphrates River Yacht Club

Euphrates River Yacht Club

patrol at Al Taqqadum in the Anbar Province Sgt Grit,
I was going through my photos from OIF 2 and found one that I had taken and wanted to share with your readers and any potential former members that had the honor to be a part of Small Craft Company, 2MARDIV. The picture was taken at Al Taqqadum in the Anbar Province and had roughly 60 men to patrol approximately 75% of the Euphrates.

The nick name of ‘Euphrates River Yacht Club’ came about during our replacement’s tour of duty over there so I’m not sure as to how that came about.

Semper Fi Marines!
