15 Feb 2012 | Sgt. Justin J. Shemanski 2nd Marine Logistics Group

In March 2011, 2nd Marine Logistics Group (Forward) set out to “take care of the grunts, take care of our equipment and take care of our Afghan partners,” as Brig. Gen. Michael G. Dana, the commanding general of 2nd MLG (FWD), declared to his troops shortly after arriving in Helmand province.

One year and a job well done later, 2nd MLG (FWD) transferred authority of all logistical responsibilities in Regional Command Southwest during a ceremony aboard Camp Leatherneck, Afghanistan, Feb. 15.
