The advanced party for Company A, 1st Tank Battalion returned home to the Combat Center July 20, 2012.

The 15 Marines will be closely followed by the approximately 100 Marines in the main body, who are scheduled to arrive at the Combat Center soon.

During their time here, the advanced party Marines will be preparing for their brothers’ return.  They’ll set up the company offices and make sure the barracks are ready.

Upon the larger group’s arrival, the advanced party will also help unload the truck full of bags to speed up the process of getting the returning Marines to the barracks or thier homes for a well-deserved rest.

The company has spent the past seven months on a deployment to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. Their return home is a weight off the shoulders of the families and their fellow Marines.

“Everyone is coming home safe,” said Jany Wasdin, family readiness officer, 1st Tank Battalion. “That’s the best news.”
