Commandant, Sergeant Major of Marine Corps visit Marines in Afghanistan

Sergeant Maj. of the Marine Corps Micheal P. Barrett addresses a crowd of Marines at Combat Outpost Shir Ghazi, Afghanistan while Gen. James F. Amos, commandant of the Marine Corps listens, July 17, 2012. Here, the two leaders met with Marines from 2nd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment. General Amos and Sgt. Maj. Barrett stopped at six bases in Helmand province to thank Marines for their sacrifice and service as security responsibility in the region shifts to Afghan forces. As the Marine Corps starts to downsize its numbers from 202,000 Marines to 182,100 over the next four years, Sgt. Maj. Barrett tells Marines who want to stay in the Corps how to stay competitive for promotions.
