The Marines:

Marines are trained and equipped to answer threats all over the world because our Nation has interests beyond the borders of the United States. The USMC functions as a unique force, combining ground, aviation and amphibious assets to defend our country and its interests. From joint training that reinforces our relationships with allied countries to antiterrorism missions to secure key ports, Marines are prepared to win, wherever the battle takes them. Swipe to see the stories of Marines in fights around the world.
The Marine Corps uses a flexible organizational structure that is specifically designed for swift deployment of forces by air, land or sea. The Marine Air-Ground Task Force (MAGTF) provides our Nation with a variety of response options, coordinating teams of ground, air and logistics assets under a central command that is built to conduct a full range of operations. Because the MAGTF can be adapted, Marines are ready to fight battles around the world at a moment’s notice. Swipe through the cards below to view MAGTF variations.
As America's expeditionary force in readiness since 1775, the U.S. Marines are forward deployed to win our Nation’s battles swiftly and aggressively in times of crisis. We fight on land, sea and air, as well as provide forces and detachments to naval ships and ground operations. Marines have a long history of developing expeditionary doctrine and innovations that set the example while leading other countries in multinational military operations. These unique capabilities and leadership qualities make the Marines our Nation’s first line of defense. Could you be the next Marine to uphold the mission and legacy of the Corps?

The United States Marine Corps (USMC), also referred to as the United States Marines, is a branch of the United States Armed Forces responsible for conducting expeditionary and amphibious operations with the United States Navy as well as the Army and Air Force. The U.S. Marine Corps is one of the seven uniformed services of the United States. The Marine Corps has been a component of the U.S. Department of the Navy since 30 June 1834, working closely with naval forces. The USMC operates installations on land and aboard sea-going amphibious warfare ships around the world. Additionally, several of the Marines' tactical aviation squadrons, primarily Marine Fighter Attack squadrons, are also embedded in Navy carrier air wings and operate from the aircraft carriers. The history of the Marine Corps began when two battalions of Continental Marines were formed on 10 November 1775 in Philadelphia as a service branch of infantry troops capable of fighting both at sea and on shore. In the Pacific theater of World War II the Corps took the lead in a massive campaign of amphibious warfare, advancing from island to island. As of 2017, the USMC has around 186,000 active duty members and some 38,500 personnel in reserve. It is the smallest U.S. military service within the DoD.
