The 3-year-old daughter of Petty Officer 2nd Class Jerome Cinco, a hospital corpsman with Headquarters Battery, 1st Battalion, 12th Marine Regiment, holds her father close before his departure from Marine Corps Base Hawaii on a seven-month deployment to Afghanistan, April 25, 2011. Over the course of the week, approximately 550 Marine and sailors from 1/12 left Hawaii to replace 1st Battalion, 10th Marine Regiment, in Afghanistan's Helmand province in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. Unlike their last two deployments - supporting Task Forces Military Police in Iraq - 1/12 will revert back to its primary mission and provide artillery fire support to 2nd Marine Division (Forward) during ongoing counterinsurgency operations in the province.
