Menelaus Marines are a branch off the Navy[/QUOTE]
No they are a seperate force. The Marine Corps is like Army + Navy....Spyder F-16The Marines dont have their own special forces squad, like the army does with Green Barrets/Rangers/Delta Force. The Marines are in essence one large 'Special Ops'.
Ok that answers my questions.
[QUOTE=]The Marines Basic training is tougher and also better than that in the army, navy, and USAF. Most to all marines know how to kill a man by using just their thumbs to the guys eyes.
Yea Marine Boot Camp is 13 weeks. Others are like 6 or 7.
HOLY CRAP PEOPLE!!!!!! The Marines are under the direction of the Secretary of the Navy...they are not made up of army+navy......There is not 5 star general of the MC during time of war. Why? so the 5 star general of the Navy has undisputed rank! That in itself proves the USMC is part of the Navy
It all depends on what your definition is of 'a part of'. You dont see marines in a sailor cap, but the navy brass does have control over them. In a legal sense, the Marines are a branch of the navy, but there not really navy peeps...
