Posted: Updated:

(HawaiiNewsNow) - The 3rd Marine Regiment will stand in formation to rededicate their regimental battle colors as they mark the official end to the regiment's combat operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Marine Corp says the hour-long ceremony will reflect on the success, dedication and sacrifices of the regiment. About 1,000 Marines from the regiment's 3rd Battalion came home last week from Afghanistan. They were the last Hawaii-based Marine Infantry Battalion scheduled to deploy to Afghanistan. The regiment's three battalions will continue to train and deploy overseas to Japan and other locations.
