Yes the POTUS is in charge of the Military, as for what he can do, well W has in many ways redfined this, but the War Powers Act gives the POTUS,
Authority to deploy the Military for 90 days without Congressional Approval. This is all branches and not limited to the Marine Corps. Also remember
that the Marine Corps (A Corps is made up of 3 divisions) is a part of the Dept. of the Navy. While the USMC are treated like a seperate branch, the
fact is they are a part of the Navy and get their funds from the Navy.
