FORWARD OPERATING BASE NOLAY, Afghanistan --
The Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus traveled to Afghanistan this week to visit with Marines and Sailors of Operation Enduring Freedom.
As part of his tour, Mabus met with troops from the 2nd Marine Logistics Group (Forward) aboard Forward Operating Base Nolay, Dec. 18. While there, he awarded two Marines with the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal and congratulated them on a job well-done. Sgt. Stacy McGuffin, of Havelock, N.C., and Cpl. Clinton Haller, of Olympia, Wash., were honored to receive recognition by the Navy’s senior civilian leader.
Brig. Gen. Michael Dana, the commanding general of the 2nd MLG (FWD), then gave Mabus a tour of the various logistics lots and facilities on Nolay, offering an assessment of the MLG’s progress in retrograde operations.
As the leading logistics organization in Regional Command Southwest, the 2nd MLG is well underway in the process of accounting for, sorting and redistributing RC (SW)’s gear and equipment.
