Second Maintenance Battalion concluded a seven-month deployment in support of International Security Assistance Force Operations as 2nd Supply Bn. took the reigns as Marine Air Ground Task Force Support Bn. 11.2 during a transfer of authority ceremony here, Sept. 30.

As MSB 11.1, the Marines and sailors of 2nd Maintenance Bn., 2nd Marine Logistics Group (Forward), were able to raise equipment readiness levels from 80% to 97%, while coordinating numerous operations throughout the battlespace.

The unit completed 52 combat logistics patrols, 21 immediate response team missions and traveled a total of 10,693 miles. MSB 11.1’s surgical company was able to treat 1,104 patients, to include 352 battle-related injuries.

Lt. Col. Kevin Scott, the commanding officer of 2nd Maintenance Bn., was eager to praise his team of dedicated professionals.

“It’s been an absolute pleasure to work with what I believe is some of our nation’s best Marines and sailors,” proclaimed Scott.

“As we head back home, let’s do it in the same fine fashion as when we came out.”

Lt. Col. David Gibbs, the commander of 2nd Supply Bn. (MSB 11.2), began his remarks by thanking those in attendance, along with the staff of MSB 11.1 for their steadfast support in the turnover process. He then delivered a statement of intent to his own Marines and sailors.

“This is our opportunity to perform,” he said. “It’s an honor to serve America, an honor to serve the Corps and we will provide the best support possible for [Regional Command Southwest] and II [Marine Expeditionary Force].”
