Camp Lejeune Marines To Deploy

On a day where many North Carolinians have the opportunity to exercise their right to vote, some of the men and women who defend that and other freedoms in this country will deploy overseas.

Families at Camp Lejeune will say goodbye Tuesday to the main body of the Third Battalion, Tenth Marine Regiment . They are deploying to Afghanistan. Violence in that country has taken it's toll on troops from Lejeune, with 20 killed in just two months this summer.

    I want to thank the Marines of 3/10 who are leaving for Afghanistan. Your call to duty and commitment to the Corps is allowing my fiance, who is a Marine in 2/8 there in Lejeune, to come home for the holidays. My prayers are with you as you embark on the deployment ahead as well as with your family and loved ones as they prepare for the months ahead. Good luck as you prepare to continue the excellent work already done by the Marines whom you are replacing. Semper Fi!!!
