Muslim terrorists in the Taliban just got some awful news when it was revealed that 300 U.S. Marines are on their way to Afghanistan to stop them dead in their tracks.
Truthfeed reported that Marines from the II Marine Expeditionary Force at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina have been deployed to Afghanistan to help Afghan troops stop the Taliban from taking back the territory our military fought so hard to protect. This is the largest Marine deployment to Afghanistan since 2014, when the U.S. military’s combat mission known as Operation Enduring Freedom officially ended.
The Marines are set to reach the Helmand province as Task Force Southwest by the end of April, replacing the Army’s Task Force Forge. They will spend nine months there training Afghan National Army’s 215th Corps and the 505th Zone National Police in marksmanship, indirect fire and small-unit tactics and other skills.
“Make no mistake, though we are no longer in a combat role in Afghanistan, it is still a combat environment,” Col. Matthew Reid, deputy task force commander, said in January. “As Marines, we train and deploy with a combat mindset.”
Please pray for ALL our Marines as they continue to risk their lives to fight terror and protect the United States!
