Harry Truman once asked, "Why does the Navy need it's own Army?" I see his point that the Marines are roughly doing the same thing as the Army, and why should we have TWO Armies? On the other hand, you get more bang for the buck with Marines. The Marine just needs his uniform, combat boots, body armor, rifle, whatever fits in his backpack, and he's ready to kick ass. The Army infantry soldier needs all that stuff PLUS trucks, tanks, surveillance equipment, and a host of other things. The non-infantry soldier only does what their specialty is.
Presidents also like the Marines because they can use the Marines for small military operations without approval of Congress.0
I know nothing about the war or protection work that these groups do but anybody willing to sacrifice that much of themselves is a hard worker and an honest person and probably gorgeous too if they do manual labour all day.0
I appreciate your bravery and protection for people.0
What Girls & Guys Said
Very cool history. Straight up instrumental in securing the U. S. in its early history from Muslim pirates in its first overseas conflict. The sword they carry is a direct souvenir from the success in the Barbary campaign.
Going from being professional raiders on the high seas descending from ropes, wading the water, adapting jungle, urban mission sets, to the future with jetpacks on the horizon, they are a mean part of the U. S. arsenal.10
I don't think much one way or the other. I've known a lot of marines and been good friends with several. From my experience, the stereotype of marines isn't true. And the saying that there is no such thing as an ex marine isn't true either. With the majority of ex marines I've known, they didn't fit any stereotype and you would never guess they were ex marines unless they told you.0
I was in the Army 11B but had cancer and was medically discharged. I returned as a Civil Servant for the Marines. I spent many years supporting them. Taking them to planes and ships to go to war. Taking them to their balls. Taking their families to events. And bring home the fallen. I have seen them in the best of times and their worst! I have nothing but absolute respect for a Marine their hard work discipline and dedication far exceed any other branch!0
Other then a Fuck you for not letting me in because I already had PTSD form my biological mother love the respect the hell out of them. Anyone willing to join and defend our country has my respect.
im sure older folks think I’m stupid but every time I see a U. S army navy Marines Air Force and no space for us I think I’m for there survive even if I’m just walking past them in Fred Meyer (or Kroger I think for the East Coast) basically a grocery store that’s less popular than Walmart0
They are tough and some I met are nice and others are not like anybody else. I respect what they do but that doesn't mean I have to bend my ass over and respect all of them.0
Most dangerous sexiest men and women on the short bus.
Also the most homoerotic group of straight men and women you will ever meet.

There are an element within battle space management that is required.
They provide a combined arms specialisation and also a feeder line for special operations groups.
Quite a few ex marines are fighting (and dying) in Ukraine and helping with other things while out there.
They are not however, Royal Marines…
