USS Boxer (LHD 4) departs San Diego, Calif., on a deployment to the Central Command area of responsibility in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom II force rotation, Jan 14, 2004.  More than 200 Marines and 900 Sailors embarked aboard USS Boxer are providing amphibious lift for a portion of the equipment and personnel from the 1st Marine Expeditionary Force (1 MEF) stationed at Camp Pendleton, Calif., and 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing stationed at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, Calif.  The majority of Marines deploying from 1 MEF will depart in the Spring via air transport.  Boxer's deployment order highlights the inherent flexibility of naval forces.
