Marines Return from Japan

More of our neighbors back home with friends and family. Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort was the scene of another happy homecoming. About 40 Marines, the Fighting Bengals, are back from six months serving in Japan. Marine All Weather Fighter Attack Squadron 224 ground crews arrived yesterday.

They say it wasn't a bad deployment. And some actually enjoyed it. "Started in Iwakuni, Japan, and then we toured through Darwin, Australia, Guam, and Okinawa, Japan," said Michael Pugh It was pretty much mostly training."

They expect 60 more Marines tomorrow morning, with the fighter jets back in Beaufort next week.
