Sgt. Maj. Steven L. Lunsford, battalion sergeant major, Combat Logistics Battalion 22, Combat Logistics Regiment 27, 2nd Marine Logistics Group, carries the battalion guidon off of the USS Carter Hall at the North Carolina State Port in Morehead City, N.C., March 9, 2010. Approximately 250 Marines and sailors from CLB-22 deployed to Haiti to provide humanitarian assistance and disaster relief to help alleviate the suffering of the people of Haiti after the horrific earthquake that struck Jan. 12, 2010. The battalion had just returned from a deployment to the U.S. Central Command Theater in the Middle East with the 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit, one month before the earthquake. “The fact that they came back from a seven-month deployment and less than 72-hours after hearing about [the earthquake] they were equipped and loaded on a naval ship says tons of things about the quality of Marines we have,” Lunsford said.
