A simple truth exists as a Marine. You will fight and win battles for our Nation and its communities. To earn that privilege, you must first fight and win your own battles with hesitation, self-doubt, with fear.

Being a Marine

Serving as a United States Marine means honoring the guiding principles to always remain faithful, serve with selflessness and fight for the ideals that frame this Nation.

WhatWe Do

Acting as America’s premier crisis response force, Marines are trained, structured and equipped to do one thing—win battles.

WhoWe Are

Honor, courage and commitment are the core values that drive the actions of every Marine, but it is the fighting spirit within that ensures victory.
