Commandant of the Marine Corps Gen. James F. Amos thanks a 2nd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment Marine for his question at Combat Outpost Shir Ghazi, July 17, 2012. General Amos and Sgt. Maj. of the Marine Corps Micheal P. Barrett stopped at six locations in southern Afghanistan to meet and thank Marines for their service. Both leaders discussed the future of the Marine Corps as it begins to scale down in size from 202,000 Marines to 182,100 over the next four years. As the focus shifts away from prolonged combat operations in Afghanistan, the Marine Corps looks to be an expeditionary force in readiness in the Pacific. Marines will be deployed and stationed in Japan, Guam and Australia.
