2nd Supply Battalion welcomes home last-remaining Afghanistan deployers

18 Apr 2012 | Sgt. Justin J. Shemanski

Welcomed with the warmest of receptions, the last-remaining Marines and sailors attached to 2nd Marine Logistics Group’s 2nd Supply Battalion returned home to their loved ones, April 18.

 Nearly 300 active-duty and reserve personnel ended their seven month-long tour of duty in Afghanistan in support of International Security Assistance Force operations in Helmand and Nimroz provinces.

“This is seven months drawing to a close right here,” said Master Sgt. Herrick Ross, the operations chief for 2nd Supply Battalion. He was among those who began the unit’s return when they arrived stateside nearly one month ago.

“They did a phenomenal job and their families are anxious to get them back,” he noted.

The battalion served under the moniker of Marine Air-Ground Task Force Support Battalion 11.2 while deployed. They provided service and support within Regional Command Southwest to include equipment maintenance, general support motor transportation and medical services.
