    U.S. Marine Maj. Alasdair Mackay, the camp commandant here, pays tribute to the memory of Lance Bombadier James Dwyer during a decommissioning ceremony for the Camp Dwyer Memorial here, July 30, 2012. Dwyer, a British commando with 29th Commando Regiment, Royal Artillery, was killed in action Dec. 27, 2006, during the initial British and U.S. Marine occupation of southern Helmand. The decommissioning ceremony was held not only in honor of Dwyer, but also in the memory of all the servicemembers who have made the ultimate sacrifice in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. The memorial will be transferred to Camp Leatherneck and eventually make its way to the 29th Commando Regiment in England.
