Marine Aviators Deploy to Mediterranean

After returning from Iraq earlier this year, one group of Marines is now being deployed again. Strike Fighter Squadron 82 of the Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort is heading to the Mediterranean for a six-month deployment.

The news comes just weeks after Navy officials announced the squadron will be dissolving within the next year to 18 months.

The secretary of the Navy is expected to visit the air station on Monday to meet with squadron personnel concerning their future.
