Are the U.S. Marines in The Hunt for Eagle One MARSOC marines or regular infantry marines?
Based on the fact that the movie came out in January 2006 and MARSOC wasn't officially stood up late February 2006, it was most likely meant to be Force Recon Marines that are portrayed in the movie.

A branch of the U.S. armed forces composed chiefly of amphibious troops under the authority of the Secretary of the Navy.
For the US Army, during the Vietnam War, a battalion was about 600 men. The US Marine Corps will be similar in organization (during the Vietnam era).
A person who directs or assists in the navigation of a ship; sailor. or One of a series of U.S. space probes the obtained scientific information while flying by or orbiting around Mars, Mercury, and Venus.
drugs.. racism.. doing really bad things.. severly injured. etc.. out of the 4 the first 3 you will leave dishonorably.. and only scum leaves that way.
It is appropriate to say Semper Fidelis to a U.S. Marine as long as a) You mean what you say and b) you know what you're saying. Semper Fidelis means "Always Faithful" and it is mainly used between Marines as a form of respect and shows the bond that they have with all other Marines.
The mariner is a space probe that was sent to space to expolre mostly Venus but also explored other planets.
The United States Marine Corps ( USMC ) is a branch of the United States armed forces responsible for providing force projection from the sea, using the mobility of the U.S. Navy to rapidly deliver combined-arms task forces. It is one of seven uniformed services of the U.S.. Administratively, the …Marine Corps is a component of the Department of the Navy, but it acts operationally as a separate branch of the military, often working closely with US Naval forces for training, transportation, and logistic purposes.. Originally organized as the Continental Marines on November 10, 1775 as naval infantry, the Marine Corps has evolved in its mission with changing military doctrine and American foreign policy. The Marine Corps has served in every American armed conflict and attained prominence in the 20th century when its theories and practice of amphibious warfare proved prescient and ultimately formed the cornerstone of the Pacific campaign of World War II. By the mid 20th century, the Marine Corps had become the dominant theorist and practitioner of amphibious warfare. Its ability to respond rapidly to regional crises gives it a strong role in the implementation and execution of American foreign policy.. The United States Marine Corps, with 194,000 active duty and 40,000 reserve Marines, is the smallest of the United States' armed forces in the Department of Defense (the United States Coast Guard is smaller, about one fifth the size of the Marine Corps, but serves under Homeland Security). The Corps is nonetheless larger than the entire armed forces of many significant military powers; for example, it is larger than the active duty Israel Defense Forces or the whole of the British Army.

By passing boot camp. Good luck dude. . start by talking with a recruiter then pass the IST and go to boot cam and if you graduate after the 12 weeks you can then become a Marine
what CAN'T we do?! we've got pilots, infantry, people on ships, etc. you name it we've probably got it. We're the first ones into a combat zone and we're always the last out. The Marines are the only branch of service that has the ability to dominate in the air, on land, and on the sea. You can fi…ght or support combat roles in logistics. Look up Marine Corps MOS and you'll find a list of jobs (MORE)
Depends on the war. Usually marines are more survivable than any other service because of their training. They train the hardest and therefore are the best.
a better question would be what don't the marines do. but anyways they do everything (land air and sea) and they are the first to fight and the last to leave they are by far the strongest American fighting force -Semper Fi
The Marine Corps was assigned the sole responsibility of providing helicopter support to the President, worldwide in 1966. The Presidential helicopter assumes the call-sign Marine One only when in possession of the President; just as the President's 747 (operated by the U.S. Air Force) assumes the… call-sign Air Force One when the President is on board. This is done so that when Marine One or Air force One are dealing with air-traffic control, there is no ambiguity as to the importance of the flight in question. Air force One and Marine One are always given priority over other traffic. (MORE)
I would say no. The term light infantry implies mobility overland. Marine units of some countries may be designated as light infantry, but most marines today are primarily for the establishment of a beachhead. They move a short distance from ship to shore, not strictly infantry, and they are rather …heavy. (MORE)
A Marine is one who is now, or has ever been a United State Marine.
We do things that make us more available than any other branch... we are aboard ships that float the world. If anything ever pops off, a ship of Marines is near by and they've got enough stuff available to attack quickly and fiercely. Also, the president has to get approval to go to war, but technic…ally he has the right to send the Marines on ANY operation that doesn't extend past 30 days. So if the Presidents feels it's necessary to take some kind of action, there's nothing stopping him from ordering Marines to do it. So long as the operation ends within 30 days, or he tricks the system by renaming the operation and starting the 30 days all over again. He can't IMMEDIETLY order the Army though, he needs to go through some kind of process to make that happen. (MORE)
Are MARSOC marines just as well trained as Navy SEALs because people keep saying that SEALs are better trained and that MARSOC sucks?
Well trained is the question. All members of the United States Military are the most well trained. Whatever the job or function. All jobs matter. All take pride in their ability to perform their tasks as well as training and American heart can muster!!! And so, as a former Navy Seal, I can oddly say… that I have huge respect for the Marine Corps and all of their people. To say that any of us suck would require an a*s kicking, even if on the Marine Corps behalf. After all, we are all Navy!!! (MORE)
About 1 out of 3 if it is among your three choices and about 1 out of 5 if it is not an MOS choice.
First, you need to be at least a Corporal/E-4. Next, you have topass a screening board, where they look over your career in theMarines to check for any problems, such as NJPs or otherdisciplinary actions, then they give you a physical to make sureyou are in the proper physical condition and have no …psychologicalor medical conditions that would affect your career in MARSOC orthat your initial screening at basic might have missed or haveappeared since then. If you pass the screening board, they send youto a Assessment and Selection (A&S) Course, similar to theArmy's SFAS. After A&S, if you are selected, you will move onto the Individual Training Course, or ITC, which is similar to theArmy's Q-Course. ITC is broken up into 4 different phases. - Phase 1 focuses on physical fitness, such as swimming andconditioning; field skills, such as navigation and SERE; andmission skills, such planning and communications. - Phase 2 builds on the previous skills, adding on demolitions,intelligence gathering/recon, and patrolling. - Phase 3 adds pistol and rifle marksmanship, team tactics, and howto raid various objectives in urban and rural environments. - Phase 4 works on irregular/guerrilla warfare and how to work withpartner nations, such as Iraq or Afghanistan, and advise themduring training. After ITC, you are placed with an operational Marine SpecialOperations Team or MSOT, and continue your training. You should talk to your local Marine recruiter if you areinterested in joining MARSOC.

The length of United States Marine Corps School of Infantry depends on the specific Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) that a Marine is training for. As there are many different MOS's, there are many different lengths.
YES, Royal Marines are definitely one of the best units in the world because of their rigerous 32 week training regime and their history, from being the ships infantry in the 1700's to the elite raiding force of today. They now operate on all terain from dense tropical jungles to the freezing arctic… to the hot dry deserts and on beaches. The Royal Marines have earned the right to be classed as one of the best fighting forces in the world today. (MORE)
Typically there are three Battalions in a Regiment. A Marine Corps Grunt Battalion has on average around 750 Marines (may vary if the U.S. is in a time of war or not). So a Regiment would average around 2300 Marines.
In the marines do you get to pick your gun for infantry and snipers and spotters i am not in the marines yet but i will?
Today's US military is NOT the same as the military during the Vietnam War, WWII, etc. Today's military has a "Law Enforcement" capability...whereas during the aforementioned wars, law enforcement, with the exception of martial law, etc., was NOT authorized; especially when it involved US citizens o…n US soil. Therefore, infantry and sniper/spotters, weapons, etc. SOP (Standard Operating Procedures) will more than likely be DIFFERENT than the Vietnam, WWII times. During WWI, WWII, Korea, and Vietnam Wars, US servicemen were sometimes able to CHOOSE their MOS (Military Occupational Specialty=job)...but NOT their equipment. Servicemen utilized the equipment that they were issued; be it a M48 Patton tank or a .45 pistol. US Army snipers in Vietnam were issued an XM-21 weapons system (US Army sniper rifle)...they used it. If they didn't like it, they had to make the best of it. If the Army sniper found a better sniper rifle while operating in the field, he got away with using it, until he re-entered the "rear" area...then he either had to hide it or surrender it, or otherwise get away with keeping it until he could reach the "field" again. Once back in the field, officers/commanders, etc. didn't much care what happened out there (in the field) as long as the mission was accomplished. Which is ONE reason, a lot of men preferred the field more than the rear areas (in all or most wars), a GI had more freedom in the field. (MORE)
11B - infantry. Prior to the reorganization which occurred towards the end of 2001/beginning of 2002, the 11 series Career Management Field consisted of the following infantry MOSs - 11A (Infantry Officer - commissioned officer only), 11B (light infantryman - enlisted), 11C (mortar crewman - enliste…d), 11H (anti-armor crewman - enlisted), 11M (mechanized infantryman - enlisted), and 11X (basic trainee/not MOS qualified - enlisted). After the reorganization, the MOS of 11H and 11M were folded into 11B. 11A remains Infantry Officer, and 11C remained in place for mortar team members. (MORE)
I was in the Marine Corps infantry for four years. I was always told that it takes 12 Marines to support 1 grunt (infantryman). If that is true then about 7.7% of the Marine Corps is infantry. That does sounds about right. At Camp Pendleton, the grunt units were at Horno (1st Marines), San Mateo (5t…h Marines) and some at Las Flores (LAR - Light Armored Reconnaissance)- not very big areas on the base. But the POG (personnel other-than grunt) units were all over Mainside, Del Mar, Las Pulgas, Margarita, etc. Huge areas of the base with a lot of Marines. Think about all the other units there are; artillery, tanks, helos, air wing, mechanics, motor-t, comm, admin, supply, intel, refuelers, cooks, MPs, armorers, ammo techs, etc. There is a lot of behind the scenes work that goes into making sure that grunt on the ground can get his job done. But don't for a second think that every Marine is a rifleman. That pisses me off. There is a lot that you have to know to be a grunt - weapons systems, comm equipment, patrolling, raids, IA drills (immediate action), MOUT, call for fire, enemy weapons and equipment, etc. POGs might have a brief exposure to these things in boot camp and MTC but they're not professionals at them like grunts are. Calling every Marine a rifleman is the same as calling someone who has a first-aid certification a paramedic. (MORE)
That depends on whether or not if your NCO's will allow you to or not. I know during the weekends your off, but during? Chances are from zip to none.
The Marines in my opinion are a liberation force to help other places such as Iraq to become free. The United States Marine Corp is one of the most respected military branches out there because they have the hardest boot camp know to the public. Also marines are about protecting the home front. Othe…r people have said that the Marines are about teaching teens and young adults about respect, strength, and fighting for your country. (MORE)
For the past ten years, it's pretty much been all of them. I spent more time outside the wire as a combat medic than most of our infantry did, since there was a much lower number of medics than there were infantry, and I'd often have to go on multiple patrols in a single day, whereas the infantry wo…uld usually do their one patrol for the day (or a couple days), and then get to stay at the FOB until they're tasked for another patrol.

No. ___ Potential soldiers or marines must be free of mental illness upon entry. According to the Marine Corp website: . Mental health is a critical component of personal and unit readiness. Mental health is more than just the absence of mental illness, it is mental resilience, flexibility…, and the capacity to deal with problems as they occur (to adapt, innovate, and overcome) . Schizophrenia would be listed as a "disqualifying medical condition" (MORE)
The United States Marine Corps is America's expeditionary and amphibious force. They rely on the United States Navy for transportation. The U.S. Marines are usually the first ones into battle, and they are the first line of defense. One could say they are "the tip of the spear", so to speak.
The first step is to go see a recruiter and talk to them and they will help you with all the steps.
The u.s. navy seals are the best. That's why they are called seals. It stands for sea air land, because they are the best at sea, in air, and on land
The Marines are for you if you like being worked hard, being yelled at, getting strong, being the first out, and dealing with a bunch of confident strong willed people that don't back down.
The best weapon is the weapon that matches your the set up of the rest of your army. A good combination of weapons is always best. Try some combinations, find your play style.
It depends. There are 4 people in a team, 13 in a squad, about 42in a platoon, 3 rifle platoons plus 1 weapons platoon plus HQ andsupport makes about 160-180 in a company. 3 rifle companies plus 1weapons co. plus 1 HQ Co. make a battalion so 750-900 in abattalion. Sometimes less, sometimes more.
Yes, although most veterinarians who specialize in working with marine animals do not also practice on domesticated animals. However, to be a marine vet, you would first need to go through the training to be a regular vet.
It symbolizes the "land" element of the Marine Corps ability to operate at sea, on land, or from the air. It's something the USMC takes pride in, because while the Navy has a Sea and Air component, the Army has a Land and Air component, and the Air Force has an Air and Land component, the Marines ar…e the only branch to be 100% combat effective on all three. That is why their sacred symbol is the Eagle (air), Globe (land), and Anchor (sea). (MORE)

Whichever one feels right to you. I was in the 82nd, and wouldn't change that if I had the opportunity to go back and change that decision. I'm sure a lot of Marines feel the same way.
It depends on your rank, time in service, if your married and or have dependants
1...Much like Air Force One, Marine One is the moniker for the Marine helicopter on which the President of the United States is on. It is ONLY called Marine One when he is onboard.
Marine recruiters work nationwide. There are various recruitment centers where you can meet a marine recruiter. Also there are special events where marine recruiters will be present. Contact a recruitment center for dates and places where they will be present.
Enrollment starts with talking to a recruiter. There are physical,academic and citizenry requirements that must be met for enrollment as well. The recruiter can tell you if you meet the requirements.
Applying for a Marine job is not an easy process. Perhaps the best way is to stop by a local Marine recruiter in person with a resume in hand. Otherwise, it is possible to fill out applications online at the official website of the Marines.
Marine batteries are used for starting a boat's engine and running electrical appliances such as lights and electronics. One can purchase them from Amazon, Sam's Club and Bass Pro.
A marine chronometer measures time. It is a very precise instrument because it can also be used to measure the longitude of the ship at sea using the time shown and the angle of the sun.
One can meet with US Marine Corps recruiters from the following sources: Marines, Military, US Military, MARSOC - Marine Corps, Marine Spot, Today's Military, Marine Corps Recruit, to name a few.

As a Marine, regardless of what you do, you typically get four daysoff for major holidays. The actual amount of free time varies fromunit to unit.
The U.S. Marines occupied Nicaragua from 1912 to 1933, except for anine-month period beginning in 1925.
