    Sumter County Government was formally recognized Tuesday evening by the United States Marine Corps 24th Expeditionary Unit.
    Lt. Col. Ray Kaster told County Council that regular training exercises bring the Marines from Camp Lejeune up and down the East Coast with a stop here.
    Sumter County has provided locales for the Marines to train and help build their capability as a crisis response force readying for potential combat situations, he said.
    Sumter County specifically has been “pivotal the last couple years” in providing venues to allow the Marines to conduct specific training needed “to help sharpen the edge of the sword, if you will,” he said.
    Thank you, Lt. Col. Kaster, and we appreciate what you and your fellow Marines do each and every day to keep us safe.
