The relatively new commandant of the Marine Corps is visiting Cherry Point for the first time Tuesday.
General James Amos will meet with Marines at the base beginning at 9:30 a.m.
The visit comes on the heels of the compromise debt deal that President Barack Obama reached with congress that will slice $350 billion from projected military spending over the next 10 years. The agreement leaves open the possibility of up to $500 billion in additional reductions.
