While Marine Corps Gunnery Sgt. Jamie Hammond was in Afghanistan, thieves broke into her storage unit and stole all her possessions.

According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, Hammond had returned to Camp Pendleton for a conference, and the day before she was to fly back to Afghanistan, she went to store some personal belongings in her storage unit in Vista, Calif.

According to the Union-Tribune, Hammond said she "was in utter shock, disbelief, panic and rage," when she saw that all her belongings were stolen. "All of the items I had acquired during my childhood and adult life were stolen from me."
