Your marine will find our more information abut his assignment but for Opspec reasons we wouldn't be discusses deployment except in general terms. As Sandy explained below, unless a battalion is getting ready to deploy, you don't find much activity.
(See her post below)

Congrats to your son on completing training!! If you have any other questions let us know. Welcome aboard !

My son is graduating 3/27 and has been assigned to 2/2. He made no mention of his Company - maybe he doesn't know yet. He is a rifleman. How soon after grad do they get deployed?

Well, my son leaves for Norway soon. I know there is a lot of hard work ahead of him but what a life experience!

Hello, my son just joined the 2/2 after graduation from SOI and advised me that a 6 -7 month blk sea rotation will be coming up. Interested in communicating with group members to help me with all kinds of answers I will need from those 1,000 questions I know I Will have :-)
