Here is a History of the United States Marine Corps
We are the oldest formed branch of military in the United States, formed even before we were a country.. November 10th 1775..
We are a Department of the Navy as far as paperwork goes, but as of the early 1960s we are a standalone service and the sole proprietors of the
"Ready Reserve" able to respond within 24 hours to any military emergency...
We are called Marines
Army members are called Soldiers
"Once a Marine, Always a Marine"
Our motto.. Semper Fidelis... Always Faithful
"God, Country, Corps"
Hope this helps
