This week’s Marine Corps Times cover story cuts right to the chase: It’s all about what the service’s new top officer has planned.
Commandant Gen. Jim Amos sat down with Marine Corps Times senior writer Gina Cavallaro and managing editor Andy deGrandpre last week, outlining a variety of priorities for the service. Among them, he wants to see Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command continue to grow, new re-enlistment rules and better unit cohesion. He also disclosed his feelings on the Corps’ tattoo policy.
If you look at the cover image above, you’ll also see a teaser that says he “almost declined the top job” in the service. That’s true, and the details are inside.
