Camp Lejeune unit nears end of tour in Iraq, ready for return home

            CAMP TAQADDUM, Iraq -- After more than seven months of running supply convoys, collecting and burying enemy killed in action, and providing humanitarian aid to Fallujans, several hundred Camp Lejeune Marines are leaving Iraq.
            More than 200 Marines from Bravo Company, 2nd Transportation Support Battalion -- a unit of military truck drivers, mechanics, and heavy equipment operators -- are returning to North Carolina this month.
            The unit arrived in Iraq last summer for duty with the Camp Pendleton-based 1st Force Service Support Group.
            The first of Bravo Company's seven platoons -- Maintenance Platoon -- left two days ago for Kuwait, where they will spend several days before flying back to the States.
