About 1stMRB

How we came into being and what we're about now

1st Marine Raider Battalion - 1stMRB - is an Arma 3 Military Simulation unit born from the senior command of the 16th Marine Expeditionary Unit; with a desire to meet the highest of standards, the idea of a MARSOC unit was brought to life.

During a meeting between the Company and Battalion Command elements of 16th MEU, a decision was made that, although they had well over 200 members and were the fastest growing unit in the ArmA community, they weren't enjoying the style of gameplay, nor were they enjoying the company of the people they were playing with. Something had to change.

Not wanting to waste any more time, LtCol A. James and his senior staff decided to thank the membership for their efforts in the unit, and closed the doors on the 16th MEU. However, a few good players and, more importantly, good people were kept on and given one directive: be elite, be exclusive. What remained of the unit was dismantled and, from the rubble, the 1st Marine Raider Battalion was born and given that same directive: Be elite. Be exclusive.
