I find it very interesting a congressman is weighing in on this now, is he admitting he didn’t do a thorough job in the first place. Even more interesting is these exact same types of questions he is asking about Gen Amos, could be asked about our commander in chief. Why doesn’t the congressman take care of in house issues before attacking the Marines. The congressman better not have any skeletons either– Time for a C-Gar
WASHINGTON – Days before Marine Corps Commandant Gen. James Amos is set to retire, allegations have surfaced that he padded his resume and may have misled Congress about completing a vital training program.
At issue is whether Amos, a four-star general, attended and completed The Basic School – rigorous training for newly commissioned or appointed Marine Corps officers. His official resume, the one he signed and submitted to Congress during his confirmation hearing in 2010, says he graduated in 1972.
A longtime Amos critic first raised questions about whether military records back that up. But Rep. Walter Jones, R-N.C., another Amos critic, also has gotten involved and is asking Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel to investigate the matter.
