Where is the 24th MEU?
I've promised a reader to decipher this tonight. First thought, with no evidence whatsoever, just a gut feel: 24th MEU's infantry, 1st Battalion, 2nd Marines, is preparing to participate in the Ramadi attack. Therefore they are RIPing (relief in place) with the Black Watch, which is currently under the command of the 24th MEU. I think the Euphrates is a unit boundary and the 24th MEU seems to be south of it, as that is where the Black Watch was last reported patrolling. Ramadi is also south of the Euphrates. Thoughts?
