    MARINE CORPS BASE CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. – After a successful year-long deployment to Helmand province, Afghanistan, approximately 230 Marines and sailors with Combat Logistics Regiment 15 return, here, Feb. 3.

    The Marines and sailors of CLR-15 took over as the Logistics Combat Element from 1st Marine Logistics Group (Forward) in September 2012 and has since provided tactical logistics support to Regional Command Southwest.

    While deployed, CLR-15 accomplished many missions. The unit planned and coordinated 535 combat logistics patrols, coordinated the movement of more than 1.2 million gallons of fuel throughout the battle-space, coordinated and executed more than 150 helicopter support team missions, and executed nine major base transfers or closures in support of base realignment and closure operations.

    “I couldn’t be more proud of the work our Marines and sailors did,” said Col. Stephen D. Sklenka, commanding officer of CLR-15. “Our goal was to provide uninterrupted logistics support that maintained the operational momentum of the [International Security Assistance Force Marine Air-Ground Task Force]. That was our fundamental objective, and I’d like to think we did just that.”

    Members of the media are invited to meet at the Camp Pendleton Main Gate no later than 9:30 a.m. to cover the CLR-15 homecoming.

    Media interested in covering this event must RSVP by phone at 760-763-7795 (office) or 760-716-0762 (cell) or email at 1MLG_PUBLIC_AFFAIRS@USMC.MIL no later than 4 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 1. Members of the media with RSVPs will meet at the Main Gate no later than 9:30 a.m. on Feb. 3, to be escorted to the homecoming."
