CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. — Some 1,000 Marines and sailors are leaving Camp Lejeune for a six-month deployment in Afghanistan.

Marine Corps spokesman 1st Lt. Jim Stenger said members of Combat Logistics Battalion 6 will depart in groups over the next several days, with the first group leaving Wednesday.

The unit is departing from Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point.

Stenger said the battalion will provide logistics support to units operating in southwest Afghanistan. While deployed, the battalion is forming the nucleus of a larger unit called Combat Logistics Regiment 2.

The unit will advise and assist the Afghan National Security Forces during its deployment.
