CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. — Veterans who served in 1st Air Naval Gunfire Liaison Company in Vietnam and Korea stood shoulder to shoulder Friday evening to shake the hands of 20 Marines deploying to Afghanistan this Memorial Day weekend.
The elder Marines patted their younger counterparts on the back and told them to keep their heads down as the men boarded a bus to the airport.
The Marines of 1st ANGLICO’s Supporting Arms Liaison Team Charlie are likely the last such unit to deploy to Afghanistan, and may be among the last Marines to come home from the conflict at the end of the year.
