Marines Return Monday

Marines from Camp Lejeune are coming home from Iraq.

About 1,000 Marines and sailors from the 2nd Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division, will return Monday. The battalion is completing a 7-month deployment to Ramadi, the provincial capital of Al Anbar province in western Iraq.

Anbar is a key province. It accounts for 30 percent of Iraq's land mass and stretches from Baghdad to the borders of Syria and Jordan.
