From the American Revolution to Afghanistan (this month marks 237 years) Marines have played a key role in the warfighting heritage of our nation. Yet, the Marine Corps is but one arm of a strong team. On the modern battlefield, no element of the joint force fights alone. I am fortunate to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with my fellow service chiefs—each leading their respective branch, each representing the world’s finest. It is with pride that Marines take their place among those warriors. Each service fills its unique role in the joint force, but none can win without the others. In fact, this tightly integrated, multi-domain capability is the very essence of what makes the U.S. joint force so powerful.
Who We Are
In an ever-changing, ever-dangerous world, the Marine Corps remains a constant in our nation’s defense: Always faithful. Always ready.
By General James F. Amos, U.S. Marine Corps
