CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. (AP) - Approximately 2,100 U.S. Marines and U.S. Navy sailors with the 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit are about to come home.

A statement from Camp Lejeune (luh-JERN’) says the unit is in the midst of concluding its nine-month deployment with the Bataan Amphibious Ready Group. Approximately 200 Marines and sailors are to come back to the North Carolina base on Oct. 28.

The MEU served as a sea-based, expeditionary crisis response force throughout the U.S. 5th and 6th Fleet areas of operations, where it conducted security cooperation events with allied and partner nations and supported contingency operations.
