    My name is Tina, and I have a marine in Marjah. I am always on line hoping to catch something on his company but nothing. My son is with 1/6 2nd BN, CCO. I haven't heard from him for weeks and was hoping to catch something on line about his company. I know that they have been doing a lot of patrol. I didn't know if there was a reporter with each company or not. Please contact me with some information if possible
