The second of several companies of Marines are expected to arrive home today to the Twentynine Palms Combat Center. Third Battalion 4th Marines, and 3rd Combat Engineer Battalion deployed to Afghanistan in April in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. The Marines supported the transition of U.S. forces over to the Afghan National Security Forces. An advance party for 3rd Battalion 4th Marines returned home about two weeks ago. More Marines and sailors from the Darkside Battalion and 3rd CEB are scheduled to arrive home Friday. Listen to Z107.7 today as we welcome the Marines home with a live broadcast of their return. Due to operational security concerns, Z107.7 will not announce the Marines’ return until they are about an hour out.
