“I would like to thank my family for staying behind me, no matter what, as I served,” said Larimore. “I   would also like to thank the Marines for all of your hard work and dedication to the unit. You have made this tour a great success.”

 

Larimore has been directed to proceed and report to Combined Joint Task Force, Horn of Africa.

“I would like to thank Lt. Col. Hanson for this opportunity and having faith in me,” said Langham, a native of Silsbee, Texas. “I realize that by being   given this position I have now entered the door of a new challenge, but I believe that with the help of the unit, the challenge will be met.”
