A large deployment from Camp Lejeune, N.C., to Afghanistan will result in hundreds of family members being left behind. American Legion posts in the area are urged to provide assistance to those families through The American Legion Family Support Network. American Legion posts in the Camp Lejeune and Jacksonville, N.C., area may see an increase in requests for Temporary Financial Assistance, as well as requests for additional Family Support Network programs for families of these newly deployed Marines. If American Legion posts in the region want to proactively reach out and offer assistance to those impacted, the II Marine Expeditionary Force Public Affairs office at Camp Lejeune can be reached at (910) 451-7200. Learn more about the American Legion Family Support Network Program on the American Legion website.
