We are proud and honored to support the 3rd Battalion/4th Marine Regiment in Afghanistan. This is the second time we are supporting these brave Marines. We picked them up during OIF 05-07 in the area of Hit, Iraq, when they were under the command of Lt. Col. JJ D. --
(from their web page) OPERATION IRAQI FREEDOM (05-07) 2006-2007: In September 2006, the battalion redeployed to Iraq operating in the areas of Al Qa’im, Hit, and Anah. This combat deployment was defined by small units operating independently and partnering/embedding with their Iraqi counterparts. During this deployment the battalion conducted the full spectrum of Counter-Insurgency Operations (COIN). The end result was that the Darkside played a big role in what become known as the military "surge" in Iraq. This "surge" help set the conditions for victory in Iraq. After being extended for two extra months, the battalion redeployed back to Twentynine Palms in May 2007.
The 3/4 Marines have secured the town of Now Zad and have helped rebuild a small school there. AaSP is working hard to obtain school supplies and clothes for the children of Now Zad.
