    U.S. Marine Sgt. Frank Zaehringer, a squad leader and native of Reno, Nev., was killed in action in Marjah District, October 11, 2010, while serving with Weapons Company, 2nd Battalion, 9th Marine Regiment. Zaehringer's platoon originally signed and fired a memorial illumination round the day Zaehringer fell. The Weapons Co. Marines searched for the shell casing for the rest of their deployment but had no luck finding it until the returned to Marjah in December 2011. An Explosive Ordnance Disposal unit with the battalion recovered the shell casing in February 2012, and returned it to Zaehringer's platoon. The Weapons Co. Marines plan to bring the shell casing home and present it to the fallen hero's family.
