It’s going to be a light day of posting here at Battle Rattle, considering that Thursday usually includes Marine Corps Times’ major weekly push to get everything in and settled before deadline for the next week’s print edition.

Before diving into a few great stories I’m working for next week, though, I wanted to share the photo above. It was taken July 17 at Camp Lejeune, N.C., where families are anxiously looking forward to the return of Combat Logistics Battalion 6, which is finishing up a seven-month deployment in Helmand province, Afghanistan.

The battalion is expected to return in early-August, the Marine Corps reported on its Web site.

Share.
