Making a Difference
Driven by an uncompromising sense of purpose, Marines are committed to helping others in their local communities.
EVERY MARINE IS A LEADER
These are the leadership traits that enable Marines to lead with honor, on the battlefield and in the community.
Endure the training. Witness the transformation.
Those who desire our title must first endure our training, and undergo an everlasting change that is external, internal and undeniable. The transformation will not happen overnight, but will last a lifetime.
Always Faithful. Always a Marine.
Latin for "always faithful," Semper Fidelis is more than the Marine Corps motto. Becoming a Marine is becoming the always faithful—true to the mission, to the Marines by your side, to the Corps, to your country.
Enlisted and Officer
Active or Reserve, enlisted or officer, as one of the Few, you will forever be known by the title you earn: United States Marine.
Facing Down Threats
Whether called upon to be first to distribute aid, or called to be the first to fight the forces of global tyranny, there is no better friend or worse enemy than a Marine Expeditionary Unit.
Ship-to-shore, air-to-ground, door-to-door—there isn't a force more capable of facing down the threats of our time.
Roles in the Corps
There are hundreds of ways to serve.
