Cpl. Joshua A. Mendenhall, 23, Kansas City, Mo., motor transportation mechanic, Transportation Security Company, Combat Logistics Battalion 2, 1st Marine Logistics Group, receives a present from Santa Claus here Dec. 25. Two-hundred and fifteen Marines and Sailors each received a gift that was donated by family members and friends of the family of Capt. Tim P. Maloney, commanding officer, TS Co., CLB-2, 1st MLG. ?Being away from friends, family and home isn?t easy,? said Maloney, 30, Milton, Mass. ?To brighten up their Christmas, my wife Christina started coordinating and collecting donated gifts to send out here to the Marines and Sailors.? The platoon commanders of TS Co. collected a wish list from their troops to send back to the U.S. in November so the present would make it here by Christmas. ?Overall it shows that the people back home still truly care about the service members and what they do for our country.?
