"US Army no longer has any traditional infantry units. All are mechanized, not that they are always mounted. Not sure about Marines, but I imagine the same."

I was with the 1/75th Ranger Battalion between 1986 to 1989. I spoke to some of the current soldiers in Dahlonega, GA last spring at an open house. They are still doing patrols and land navigation. The only thing that's changed is the equipment they use; GPS vs compasses. Marines, Rangers, SEALs, Delta and maybe the 82nd are still walking to their objectives the last time I checked.
