ALBANY, Ga. - After a deployment to a combat environment, reuniting with loved ones and returning to the U.S. can be an overwhelming experience.

With the support of fellow Marines, family members and friends, the transition can be less difficult.

Five Marines with Marine Corps Logistics Command returned home Thursday after extended deployments to Afghanistan.

While deployed, MCLC Marines supported and assisted in providing integrated logistics and distribution management, maintenance management and strategic prepositioning capabilities in support of the operating forces in the combat theater.

Marines assisted in various missions involving combat logistics patrols, vehicle recovery missions and necessary maintenance to MCLC assets.

“It’s always motivating to participate in a homecoming for the Marines who dedicate their lives to serving our country while in combat,” Staff Sgt. Juana L. De Los Santos, equal opportunity advisor, MCLC, said.

The Marines were greeted by their family and peers alike after seven months in theater. A happy homecoming was a priority for all in attendance.

“It’s important that we as a command show our support and gratitude for their hard work and selfless dedication to duty while they represented our command in the area of operations,” Master Gunnery Sgt. Carlotta M. Moore, adjutant chief, MCLC, said. “They were missed because they are a part of our family.”
