U.S. Marines whose comrades died defending Kabul airport return home

U.S. Marines who had been deployed to Afghanistan reached their home base on Sunday, hugging their families after the combat deaths of nine Marines from their battalion who failed to make it back. Marines from the 2nd Battalion, 1st Marines Regiment were on duty outside the Kabul airport on Aug. 26 when a suicide bomber detonated explosives, killing at least 13 U.S. service members and scores of Afghans. Nine Marines from the so-called 2/1 and a Navy sailor also based at Camp Pendleton were among the 13 killed.
