Cherry Point Marines Deploy To Afghanistan

Over 100 Cherry Point Marines have left for a deployment in Afghanistan.

The 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing Forward is scheduled to spend the next year at Camp Leatherneck in Afghanistan. They will be flying all the aviation assets to support the Marines on the ground.

Families and friends stood by as Marines packed up their gear Thursday afternoon to head out.

For most of the Marines this is their first time being deployed to Afghanistan.
