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.

About 200,000 US Marines. They have the French Foreign Legion outnumbered 25 to one. Prior to the global war on terror the US Marines had an active duty strength of approximat…ely 183,000. This includes Officers and Enlisted. This end strength is set by Congress (as it is for all services). The Marine Corps also has a sizable reserve made up by both active duty Marines that have served at least one full term of enlistment on active duty, as well as reservists that served only on active duty for training. Frequently the US Marine Corps would "get around" the limitation on end strength by bringing reservists on active duty for periods of up to one year to augment the active duty corps, and these reservist did not count against the active duty end strength. Since the GWOT, congress approved a significant increase in the active duty end strength to something like 225,000. This does not include the Marine Reserve units that were activated for the 2nd Gulf War to bulk up the US Forces in Theater. The US Marines are a smaller service because they are considered elite and hold themselves to a higher standard than virtually all military services around the globe. They are in fact the largest all elite force on earth. (MORE)

"No, they aren't! If you think they are, you're crazy! 'Cause they're cool and they defend us well!" The above was posted by another user. To answer your question: The idea… that an entire group of people can be descriped in one word is nothing more than stereotyping. It's like saying "all college football players are dumb" or "white men can't jump." There are plenty of stereotypes out there, and this is nothing more than one of them. Are marines different? Sure. They go through a rigorous trainign program just to earn the right to be called Marines. This naturally gives some of them a feeling of elitism, but the fact is that most Marines are just proud to be Marines, and are happy to have the opportunity to serve their country. I was in the Marines on active duty for 4 years. One of my best friends was a soldier, and the other an airman. I don't look at them as though they are lesser people because they weren't Marines, and most Marines don't either. The people who say that Marines are jerks really haven't met very many Marines. If they did, they would have different attitudes. (MORE)

No, afraid not. The day you are referring to was known as Marine Memorial Day until 1996. Communications Minister Shozo Murata designated the holiday in 1942 to commemorate… the Meiji Emperor and his 1876 voyage in the Meiji-Maru, an iron steamship constructed in England in 1874. The voyage included a trip around the Ou district, embarking on a lighthouse boat in Aomori, and a brief stop in Hakodate before returning to Yokohama on July 20 of that year. "Marine Day" was declared a national holiday in 1995 as a day of gratitude for the blessings of the oceans and to hope for the economic prosperity of maritime Japan. (MORE)
