i have a pretty good grasp on what the Marines do, most likely because of what my father ( Cpl. Joseph W. Lucas, USMC) has taught me. United States
Marines are known as the tip of the spear. They are also known as the first to fight. In a war, the Marines are sent in to clear out the bulk
insurgency. After there job is done, the army, and Air Force move in and set up bases. The remaining Marines stay and act as security guards and
defend the bases. The Army helps the Marines in clearing out remaining enemy forces. Hope I cleared it up for you.
