History[edit]

From October 2009 through May 2010, CLB-1 deployed to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. The battalion provided tactical logistics support to Regimental Combat Team 7 during Operation Moshtarak in February 2010, where Marines fought to secure the former Taliban stronghold of Marjah. During the deployment they were also responsible for transportation of supplies to ground units through combat logistics patrols, air delivery and helicopter support teams; improving roads and trafficability for units moving throughout Helmand Province; and maintaining vehicles and equipment that constantly took a beating in the dust-covered rocky Afghanistan terrain.[1]
