More Eastern Carolina Troops Deployed


Warm hugs and heartfelt goodbyes -- that was the scene at Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville. Over 200 marines in the Headquarters Element of the Second Marine Logistics Group are now on their way to serve our country in operation Iraqi freedom. This deployment was scheduled before President bush ordered more troops to Iraq. The marines' mission is to assist the Iraqi people in their transition into a new government. Deployment is nothing new for some of these marines, though they admit that the separation from their families is tough. The Second Marine Logistics Groups will return to Camp Lejeune in one year
