Bowen returning to Iraq with Marine sniper platoon

Having been a Marine for a little over three years, and having already served in Iraq, Marshall Bowen has been assigned back to Iraq. But, Bowen will not be returning to Iraq as a rifleman, “a basic grunt in the Marine Corps,” but as a Corporal in the 3rd Battalion, 1st Marine Division, Scout Sniper Platoon.

Bowen, son of Ky and Barb Bowen of Philip, originally joined the military because, “I wanted to see something different, to see what else is out there.” While in the Marines, he has seen areas of Africa and Europe, especially Spain.
