About 200 Marines and sailors from Fox Company, 2nd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, are scheduled to leave Marine Corps Base Hawaii today for a six-month deployment to Darwin, Australia.
“They’ll be working with our Australian allies to further their training on world-class ranges,” said Marine Corps Base Hawaii spokeswoman 1st. Lt. Diann Olson.
Olson said the unit has been “consistently deployed” to Afghanistan over the last several years.
