More Marines from Camp Lejeune are headed to help out the relief efforts in Haiti.
The Pentagon says the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit, which was already scheduled to deploy overseas, is being diverted to Haiti. The MEU left Camp Lejeune Wednesday morning.
The 24th MEU is part of an additional 4,000 additional troops being sent to the disaster-ridden country. The 22nd MEU arrived in Haiti on Tuesday, after leaving North Carolina on Friday from Morehead City.
