In early 1981, U.S. Special Forces were sent to El Salvador to train a new Immediate Reaction Infantry Battalion. This battalion became known as the "Atlacatl Battalion" and was considered to have an animal-like mystique. Headed by the legendary military commander Colonel Domingo Monterrosa, the Atlacatl Battalion became primarily responsible for conducting the infamous search and destroy operations in Morazán.
