Here's the first squad for the Whaling Group. Unfamiliar?
An 'extra' Colonel called Colonel Whaling realized that the Marines needed better patrolling skills. Being a keen hunter and outdoorsman, he found like Marines, brought them together and trained them. The Japanese Army had upped the ante so much with it's camoflauge, stealth and patrolling that even the Marines with their recent experience in Nicaragua and Haiti needed to get much better and fast.
