CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. - Seventeen Marine reservists based in Jacksonville and just back from Iraq have been ordered to remain at Camp Lejeune while allegations of misconduct during their deployment are investigated, a spokesman said Tuesday.
Lt. Col. Curtis Hill gave no details on the nature of the allegations other than to say they were leveled against 17 members of Bravo Company of the 4th Assault Amphibian Battalion, Dam Security Unit 2, of Jacksonville.
Between 100 and 120 members of the unit returned from Iraq in October. The company was sent to Iraq's Anbar province in March.
