Marine father holds son tight after returning from Afghanistan

U.S. Marine Sgt. Jacob Shepherd, a wireman with the 3rd Marine Regiment Embedded Training Team and a 26-year-old native of Bucyrus, Ohio, holds his 1-year-old son closely after returning to Marine Corps Base Hawaii from a seven-month deployment to Afghanistan, Aug. 21, 2012. Approximately 110 Marines with the advanced parties of Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 362, Combat Logistics Battalion 3 and a 3rd Marines ETT also returned from their seven-month deployments. The "Ugly Angels" of HMH-362 supported 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing (Forward) during combat operations in Afghanistan's Helmand province. The CLB-3 Marines supported Combat Logistics Battalion 4 from Camp Leatherneck in Helmand province. Marines from the 3rd Marines ETT supported Kilo Company, 3rd Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment, in Helmand province's Garmsir District.

  • The 3-year-old daughter of Petty Officer 2nd Class Jerome Cinco, a hospital corpsman with Headquarters Battery, 1st Battalion, 12th Marine Regiment, holds her father close before his departure from Marine Corps Base Hawaii on a seven-month deployment to Afghanistan, April 25. Over the course of the week, approximately 550 Marine and sailors from 1/12 left Hawaii to replace 1st Battalion, 10th Marine Regiment, in Afghanistan's Helmand province in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. Unlike their last two deployments — supporting Task Forces Military Police in Iraq — 1/12 will revert back to its primary mission and provide artillery fire support to 2nd Marine Division (Forward) during ongoing counterinsurgency operations in the province.

  • U.S. Marine Cpl. Mickey Shaw, a 23-year-old squad leader with 3rd Platoon, Kilo Company, 3rd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, and native of Louisville, Ky., cooks chicken for lunch in the combat kitchen here, Feb. 26. Patrol Base Bury, a tiny base contained by concertina wire and giant Hesco barriers, is the humble home of 3rd Platoon Marines during their seven-month deployment to Helmand province’s Garmsir district. When they finish long days of patrolling and standing post, the Marines don’t return to the comforts of showers, internet, phones or even a port-a-potty. They happily return to the simplicity of PB Bury, where they spend their down time forging friendships, working out, watching movies, cooking and reading.
