In this discussion group I post news articles for the 13th MEU. This is the latest articles I have seen. I will continue to check for recent news.

Comment by 1~Keri (HCC) on September 7, 2016 at 11:08pm

Until their boots are on U.S. soil you shouldn't mention where or when they should be arriving home.

This is a discussion above on OPSec.

 I was just able to get in touch with my brother and he said they keep giving him different information but where can I get the Email or Phone number of the FRO?

Comment by 1~Keri (HCC) on September 7, 2016 at 10:58pm

You need to contact your FRO. They are the only person's with information and only then can they give a window of when Marines will be arriving for security purposes. They have to follow OPSec.

Click the 13th MEU UNIT INFORMATION PAGE (UIP) listed above. This has most of the important information links listed, like the unit web site and also Facebook link.

Comment by Montserrat on September 7, 2016 at 10:54pm

How can I find out more information about where and at what time they are arriving? I was following the FB page and as I was reading some comments, someone said that the FRO's sent out an email with all the information but i never got it. Ive been looking everywhere and cant find anything for obvious reasons. Can anyone tell me how I can get this information, Thank you.
