Born: 10 November 1775
Mission: The USMC serves as an expeditionary force-in-readiness. As outlined in 10 U.S.C. § 5063 and as originally introduced under the National Security Act of 1947, it has three primary areas of responsibility:
- The seizure or defense of advanced naval bases and other land operations to support naval campaigns;
- The development of tactics, technique, and equipment used by amphibious landing forces in coordination with the Army and Air Force;
- Such other duties as the President may direct.
The United States Marines are our modern day Elite Force. When called into battle they do not flinch, they will not retreat, they fight to win.
If you do not believe this, remember these battles fought by the Marines:
Guadalcanal, Bougainville, Tarawa, Guam, Tinian, Cape Gloucester, Saipan, Peleliu, Iwo Jima, and Okinawa
Never call these men and women cowards or weak!
The Few, The Proud, The Marines!!!!
