"Always Faithful" is the motto of every Marine — and a compact to each Marine. Warrior to Warrior, Marine Corps to Marine, the motto Semper Fidelis is an eternal commitment to the success of our missions and the well-being of our Marines. The strength of our nation depends on the vitality of our institution; but the Marine Corps is only as capable as those who earn its title. Marines benefit from this compact with the skills, education and financial security to become both effective warriors and quality citizens. If you become one of us, we will invest in you and your future. The change is forever — so is our commitment.
A FAMILY-FRIENDLY BROTHERHOOD
Every Marine family makes a commitment to our nation. In return, the Marine Corps makes a commitment to every Marine family. The Marine Corps provides many benefits and opportunities for families not found in the civilian world, including full health coverage, access to on-base medical facilities, free on-base housing, monthly housing allowances, low-cost mortgage loans and educational funding. In addition to the support Marine families offer each other, they have access to services such as day care options, family-friendly base amenities, family counseling, deployment support and relocation assistance. As much as service in the Corps ensures the future of our nation, it also creates a better future for those who serve. Ours is a family that takes care of its own, in every way.
BENEFITS IN SUPPORT OF OUR MISSION
To be an effective force in our nation's defense, our warriors must not only be highly skilled, but also highly educated and financially secure. If you earn our title, we will invest in you—advancing your mind, your career and your future. Whether you remain in the Corps for a single term or for an entire career, you will retain numerous benefits earned by keeping this nation safe and free. Our title is earned, never given. However, those who earn it gain access to a range of benefits unequaled in the civilian world. The educational opportunities and financial incentives we offer make for a more capable warrior—and a more secure nation.
