The Marines are going back to the Pacific. Major plans for basing in Guam & Australia are underway. As forces draw down, they will be the first to leave Afghanistan starting next year. Your job? Very possible. 10 years worth of gear & vehicles have to be shipped back to the US.

You think they don't need mechanics in Afghanistan? They don't ship that kind of stuff back to the states for repairs.
