Carlson Evans

Lt. Col. Evans Carlson

The Carlson's Raiders or the 2nd Marine Raider Battalion was a group of Marine Raiders in World War II. The reason it was named Carlson's Raiders was because Evan Carlson was put in charge of the team. Then, he named it Carlson's raiders. He had two three man teams one soldier carries a BAR, a Thompson or a M1 Rifle. He also had some ten, eight and five man teams.


One notable mission carried out by the 2nd Marine Raider Battalion was the Makin Atoll Raid where the raiders caused significant damage. Although, the mission was not very successful because no strategic information was taken.
