About This Video

Run time: 60 minutes

General James Amos, commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps, discussed the role of the Marines as America's crisis response force at a National Press Club luncheon on August 28, 2012. Since being confirmed in October 2010 as the first career aviator to lead the Marines, Gen. Amos has overseen a force exhausted by a decade of war. He recently embarked on a worldwide tour to warn Marines to clean up their act after a series of embarrassing incidents pointed to a breakdown in the storied discipline of the Corps.
