Our Marines worked closely with local officials and Japanese police to remove the debris and clear all military equipment from the site before 9:00 pm. The Marines plan to return to the site next week to conduct a walk-through to ensure nothing was missed during the deteriorating weather conditions caused by the pending Typhoon Lan.
