Camp Lejeune Nomination By President Bush

The former top commander of combat troops at Camp Lejeune has been nominated by President Bush to a higher post in the Marine Corps.

The Pentagon said Friday that Lt. Gen. James F. Amos was
nominated to be the assistant Marine commandant and to be promoted
to the four-star rank of general.

Amos was commander of about 50,000 troops in the II Marine
Expeditionary Force at Lejeune. He was named two years ago to
become the deputy commandant for combat development and integration
and other posts.

The Pentagon also said Lt. Gen. Keith J. Stalder, current II MEF
commander at Camp Lejeune, was nominated to be commander of Marines and their bases in the Pacific.
