Marine Sgt. Scott P. Petry recently deployed with the 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit, Camp Lejeune, N.C., for six months to the Mediterranean Sea as part of the USS Guam Amphibious Ready Group.

The 22nd MEU will participate in joint and combined amphibious exercises with other NATO forces. Marines and sailors of the MEU will be aboard the USS Guam, USS Austin, USS Gunston Hall, USS Sumter and USS LaMoure County.

The Guam ARG will carry Landing Craft Air Cushion assault craft, amphibious landing craft and detachments of Naval Beach Group Two, Tactical Air Control Squadron 22 and Special Warfare Group Two.

The Navy and Marine "sea-air-land" team is capable of a full range of action, from port visits and humanitarian relief to major offensive operations. Sergeant Petry also will visit ports throughout the Mediterranean Sea. The son of Charles E. and Carolyn L. Petry of Westminster, he is a 1983 graduate of Carroll Christian Academy.
