About 2,000 U.S. Marines from Camp Pendleton were deployed off the Horn of Africa Wednesday, waiting for possible orders to move into war- and famine-ravaged Somalia. They all had left Camp Pendleton in October on a routine deployment, Cpl. Paul Jerome said. "They, like everyone else, are awaiting some kind of word," Jerome said.
