Ours is a noble path and a demanding journey, reserved for those with the willingness to engage and determination to defeat every physical, mental and moral adversary. Over fear and doubt, through fatigue and scrutiny — Marines win.

Marines are trained and equipped to answer threats all over the world because our nation has interests beyond the borders of the United States.

 The Marine Corps functions as a unique force, combining ground, aviation and amphibious assets to defend our country and its interests.

From joint training that reinforces our relationships with allied countries to antiterrorism missions to secure key ports, Marines are prepared to win, wherever the battle takes them. Watch below.

Tools to Win Battles

As our nation's force in readiness, Marines use equipment most conducive to responding at a moment's notice.

Only carrying what's needed to accomplish each mission, Marines ensure that the majority of their equipment can be loaded and transported aboard Marine Expeditionary Units.

Until every battle is won

Marines are trained to improvise, adapt and overcome any obstacle in whatever situation they are needed. They have the willingness to engage and the determination to defeat the enemy until victory is seized.

The fighting spirit that helps them win these battles extends beyond the scope of their military service, and many Marines continue to serve in the communities where they live.
