Inscription.  Since World War II, the Marine Corps and the US Navy have performed countless humanitarian missions.

Perhaps General James Mattis said it best in 2003: "we will treat all others with decency, demonstrating chivalry and soldierly compassion for people... You are part of the world's most feared and trusted force...

For...our country's sake, and the sake of the men who carried the...colors in the past battles...keep your honor clean. Demonstrate to the world there is 'No Better Friend, No Worse Enemy' than a U.S. Marine."


The tasks Marines are called upon to handle today involve much more than just rapid deployment and combat. You can find Marines serving here at home and overseas in ways you may not have known about.
