Marines “Invade” Seahawks Training Camp


By Paul Johnson

Renton, Washington (CNN) - A group of marines dropped into lake Washington from helicopters, then came ashore to visit the Seahawks at their practice field Thursday.
It was an exciting moment for the players, who welcomed the marines to the shoreline.
This was one of the marines' top reconnaissance teams.
Their job is to quietly move into an area and secure it, using their highly skilled technique and training.
Capt. Alissa Tarsiuk said, “Being a native, native from Kent, Washington, I am a huge Seahawks fan, it's awesome to show what we do as Marines, here to the fans of the team and to the 12th man as well.”
Afterward, the Marines got a chance to meet and talk with some of the Seahawks players and also get a few autographs.
And it wasn't just the marines showing their stuff for the Seahawks Thursday.
The navy's premier flying team, the blue angels, flew their F-18's over the Seahawks practice field, to the delight of the fans who turned out to watch the players.
