Annually on February 2
In February 1992, VMGR-352 participated in a United Nations relief effort to Kenya supporting Operation Restore Hope in nearby Somalia. VMGR-352's original mission was to transport food and supplies to lawless Somalia. However the situation later turned into a combat support mission in support of the 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit (11th MEU) and ended with the evacuation of the US Embassy.
