A branch of the US armed services formed on 10 November 1775, to stop the British from attacking merchant vessels, they are the only branch of the Armed Forces to have red white and blue in their uniform. Are the President's corps which means they can be called to action at any time w/out an act of congress or act of war.

Not to be confused with the far superior, more professional and tremendously sexually deviant Royal Marines.

Two Points of View

Their Own

The Spearhead of the U.S. military first one in, first one shot. Unlike the the Special Forces (SEALS, ET, Combat Controllers etc.) they don't have to ride the short bus. Can kick any other branches ass simply because they are highly trained killers (Well, they are able to pull a trigger). Always faithful to Corps and Country. A highly prided family of few who won every great war there was.

And to all Semper Fi!!!

Muscles Are Required Intelligence Not Essential, SIR!

Everyone Elses

A group of high school dropouts that desperately wants to be like the infantry. Organization and organic weapon systems suited for a shock force only; the US Marine Corps is commonly used as a conventional infantry force and subsequently manages to take more casulties than their infantry counterparts. Marines are too arrogant to be called "soldiers" and too stupid to take cover when a fire-fight starts.
