A branch of the US Armed Forces. Marines go through approximately three months of intense training, peaking at the Crucible, in which the recruits must work together as a team throughout a fifty-four hour operation with minimal rest. The Crucible tests all of the knowledge gained throughout training, and is truly the final test for a recruit. Marines are trained to work in smaller groups with less modern weaponry, however this requires them to be more tactical than the Army. Contrary to popular belief, Marines and the Army are just as important as each other, as are the Air Force and Navy. Whichever a person joins depends on their preference.
The Marines are the first into a battle ground, the Army joins to help the advance, greatly. The Navy secures the shores and fires artillery salvos, and the Air Force provides much needed fire support on high-risk operations. Combined, the force of the US Military surpasses most foes it will encounter. (Exceptions include the Vietcong and Russians, as the Russians never truly engaged US Forces, and the US removed itself from Vietnam.

Please people, stop making biased decisions. The US is awesome, as is everybody else.

whoever wrote the definition above is a moron. all branches require minimum ASVAB scores for different MOS (jobs). Although the US Army has significantly lowered its standards of entry and lowered the intensity of its "Basic Training" the Marine Corps standards have not changed and bootcamp is still a grueling 12 weeks which include long days of intense physical training and conditioning, as well as classes and testing on military knowlege and Marine Corps history and structure. But as in any govenment branch elite or not there are always idiots that slip throught the cracks
marines are the worlds 9-1-1 force

The most diciplined fighting unit in the history of the modern military. A Marine is cunning, exacting, and most of all, deadly. A marine is trained to kill all enemies of the United States Govornemnt. A champion of freedom, and a defender of all of those cant defend themselves. A Marine is a soldier of freedom.
