I am a Capt Melvin Scarbo Jr. commanding 2nd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment with the United States and Britain Coalition Force in Afghanistan. Due the decision by our Government to withdraw our troops from Afghanistan & Iraq. I have decided to quit the Marines.
Our Captain must be a most impressive man to be in command of a Marine battalion; such billets are usually reserved for light colonels (and occasionally bird colonels). If the Marines trust him with a job two pay grades above his own, surely we can trust him!
