We investigated allegations that Brigadier General Uribe, while serving as the Deputy Commanding General for Operations-Baghdad, and Director, Combined Joint Operations Center, Baghdad, Combined Joint Forces Land Component Command, Iraq, between May 2016 and June 2017, permitted his officer aide-de-camp to perform activities other than those required in the performance of official duties.  We also investigated emerging allegations that Brigadier General Uribe violated Marine Corps personnel weigh-in requirements during the deployment, that he solicited and accepted gifts from employees who received less pay than himself, and that he wore unauthorized awards. 
 
We substantiated that Brigadier General Uribe permitted his officer aide-de-camp to perform activities other than those required in the performance of official duties, and that he solicited and accepted gifts from employees who received less pay than himself.  We did not substantiate the remaining allegations. We recommend the Commandant of the Marine Corps take appropriate action regarding Brigadier General Uribe.
