Camp Lejeune Marines Return Home

A day of celebration for some families in Jacksonville as more Marines based at Camp Lejeune were welcomed home.

Families cheered as the buses pulled up carrying nearly 150 Marines from Combat Logistics Battalion 2. The Marines and Sailors were part of a seven month deployment to Iraq, in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.

These Marines are unique as they are the troops behind air drops of equipment, food and supplies. They also provide medical treatment to the insurgents.

For Corporal Ryan McKinney this homecoming is special. He got to hold his newborn baby girl Abbie for the first time.
