You know those guys the Army always waves around; the Rangers? Well we had a couple of those Army Rangers go through Marines' BASIC Infantry School and couldn't finish the humps (pack marches).
The Marines from 3rd LAR kicked Rangers ass at San D's MOUT Town; and they even brought more assholes and better equipment than we did.

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.

WE STOLE THE EAGLE FROM THE AIR FORCE, THE ANCHOR FROM THE NAVY AND THE ROPE FROM THE ARMY.

ON THE SEVENTH DAY WHILE GOD RESTED, WE OVERRAN HIS PERIMETER, STOLE THE GLOBE AND WE'VE BEEN RUNNING THE WHOLE SHOW EVER SINCE.

WE LIVE LIKE SOLDIERS, TALK LIKE SAILORS, AND SLAP THE HELL OUT OF BOTH OF THEM.

WARRIORS BY DAY, LOVERS BY NIGHT, PROFESSIONALS BY CHOICE, AND MARINES BY THE GRACE OF GOD.
My cousin is a total Marine.

Infantry grunts for the Navy.

The United States Marine Corps is part of the US Navy, despite the Marines' fervent claims to the contrary, and despite the fact their paychecks clearly state "Department of the Navy", not "USMC".

Marines serve two functions: 1) Catching bullets 2)Poking mines with a stick. When there is a battle where heavy casualties are expected, the Marines are sent in... to be grist for the mill.
Guy 1: I'm a Marine. Oohrah!
Guy 2: Oh, you're in the Navy.
Guy 1: What? Fuck you! I'm no swabbie fag! I'm a goddamn Marine!
Guy 2: I know. The Marines are part of the Navy, didn't you know that?

(1) A professional assassin. (2) A minister of death, praying for war. (3) A population control specialist. (4) An indispensable element of the United States Foreign Policy. (5) The only reason for the existence of Marine helicopters. (6) A revered warrior who will go anywhere at any time and destroy whatever he is ordered to destroy -- as long as he is allowed to sing obscene songs, kick cats, drink, brawl, embellish war stories beyond recognition, and corrupt members of the opposite sex. (7) A member of the gungy group of misfits known as Uncle Sam's Misguided Children. (8) A warrior for whom all reading and writing test requirements have been waived and for whom "Ooo-rah!" is the proper response to any question from a superior.
The Marines are the world's premier fighting force.

A crazy, smart, strong, honorable, and one contrased motherfucker. Pretty religious too, don't take any of that respect beliefs or politically correct shit.

Your best friend in the pirate vs. ninja debate.

Better than Chuck Norris.
1. The Marine helped the child on his way to get water from the well and bring it back to the village, while he shot thirty seven terrorists in the face with an assault rifle made of sand.

2. The first Marines were pirates hired to help america in the revolutionary war. A couple of years later they fucked up all the sneaky ass ninjas in Japan.

You thought ninjas were cool...think again, bitch

3. Chuck Norris stared evil in the face, and it backed down.

A Marine stared evil in the face, but before it could move, he ripped off its balls, and shoved it in fear's mouth and decapitatated it using his hands.

a man or woman of distinguished courage or ability, admired for his or her brave deeds and noble qualities. Born to fight, trained to kill, ready to die but never will. Marines I see as two breeds, Rottweilers or Dobermans, because Marines come in two varieties, big and mean, or skinny and mean. They're aggressive on the attack and tenacious on defense. They've got really short hair and they always go for the throat.
RAdm. "Jay" R. Stark, USN; 10 November
1995
The people of creed and class,
Of every country and clime
Have paid their respects to the Stars and Stripes
At one or another time;
At times they raise trouble among themselves,
And some one must intervene
Then the best man to send, so the President says
Is a United States Marine.
—Pvt C. Hundertmark, “Recruiter’s Bulletin,” April 1915
