Homecoming for Okinawa Marines
This was a story from our local Stars and Stripes (Saturday, September 22, 2008 Okinawa Edition.) when our Marines were welcomed home last month. It is a little sad for the single guys who come back to Okinawa from a deployment with no family or friends to welcome them. The single and unaccompanied Marines and Corpsmen without families on island were welcomed back from a 9 month deployment by a group of volunteers. Banners, gift cards and letters were sent from all over the states to let these guys know they are not forgotten!
