Thundering Third @ Camp Horno
Third Battalion, 1st Marines returned from their third tour in Iraq on April 1, 2006.  My objective for this album is to cover some of the events at "The Thundering Third" while they are home based with the 1st Marines at Camp Horno, Camp Pendleton, CA.

First, the battalion held a Memorial Dedication in memory of their fallen Marines, on May 10, 2006(Images 1 through 11).

Two days later the battalion passed in review in a Relief & Appointment Ceremony when Sergeant Major Edward T. Sax, USMC, relinquished command to Sergeant Major Jeffrey D. Moses, USMC, on 12May06(images 12 through 27).
