What's the difference between the Marines and the Army/Navy?

Army = Occupational Fighting Force Navy = Water/Ocean Based Fighting Force

Marine Corps = Naval Fighting Force.

The full name of the Marine Corps is US Department of the Navy - Marine Corps. The Marine corps is technically a branch of the USN.

Deep in its roots, the marine corps was the defense force of the navy. Let's say that a Naval ship was being boarded. It would be the marines that would be fighting (yes.. with swords) the intruders... or on the flip side.. the ones doing the boarding.

Now a days, they do everything and they pretty much stand alone. They differ from the army because they are the first ones in combat and the last ones to leave combat. They are, in effect, the amphibious assault unit of the navy. Whenever the Army needs to retreats, the Marines step in.

Marine corps boot camp is 13 weeks of intense training.. The final week, called "The crucible", is a period of ultra intense things. Your rations are severely limited, you are sleep deprived, and given a sensory overload (blaring music, etc). The final event in the crucible is a 10 mile hike.

Army = General Army

Marines = Better than Army I guess?

Navy = Ships, and some aircraft

Yes, I've completed modified marine corps boot camp under reservist conditions. I have to requalify when I transfer to full active duty after graduation. Currently I am studying EOD\MOS2336 standards. Which stands for Explosive Ordnance Disposal. Fun stuff :)

EDIT: Knipps beat me to it

And in more detail ;)
