god bless them, a very nice monument to them
in 1984, i knew several raiders, one guy who went to the local deli wore a baseball cap with ww2 marine raider patch on it , when i questioned him on the cover, he said not many people knew what a usmc raider was and was surprise i knew what it was, my experience from being freinds with a few, always found them pleasant , and giving advise on life.
i never thought of asking for a signature or a letter. one raider who was on the rifle team with me in the MCL, he sold me seververal capture items, i never asked for a letter, the story of obtaining these items live on with me and my kids who knew him.
god bless the raiders
