The United States Marine Corps serves as an amphibious force-in-readiness. As outlined in 10 U.S.C. Â§ 5063 and as originally introduced under the National Security Act of 1947, it has three primary areas of responsibility: . "The seizure or defense of advanced naval bases and other land operatio…ns to support naval campaigns ; . The development of tactics, technique, and equipment used by amphibious landing forces; and . Such other duties as the President may direct." In addition to its primary duties, the Marine Corps has missions in direct support of the White House and the State Department. The Marine Band, dubbed the "President's Own" by Thomas Jefferson, provides music for state functions at the White House. Marines guard presidential retreats, including Camp David,  and the Marines of the Executive Flight Detachment of HMX-1 provide helicopter transport to the President and Vice President, using the call signs "Marine One" and "Marine Two" respectively. By authority of the 1946 Foreign Service Act, the Marine security guards of the Marine Embassy Security Command provide security for American embassies, legations, and consulates at more than 140 posts worldwide ( Full Answer )

A OTH is the most severe form of administrative discharge. This type of discharge represents a serious departure from the conduct and performance expected of all military members. OTH discharges are typically given to service members convicted by a civilian court in which a sentence of confinement h…as been adjudged or in which the conduct leading to the conviction brings discredit upon the service. It can also be given as the result of certain civil hearings, like a divorce for adultery. OTH discharges can be accepted in-lieu of court-martial proceedings at the service-member's request. Persons facing OTH are guaranteed, by the Uniform Code of Military Justice, the right to have their discharge heard by an administrative discharge board, which is similar to a court-martial but is not a public forum. . Recipients of OTH discharges are barred from reenlisting into any component of the Armed Forces (including the reserves), and are normally barred from joining the Army National Guard or Air National Guard, except under rare circumstances which require exception-to-policy waivers. As of September 2006, all 50 states had policies barring the reenlistment of UOTHC discharge recipients. . In addition, the majority of veterans' benefits are not available to individuals who receive an other than honorable conditions discharge, including the Montgomery GI Bill and (in most cases) VA healthcare benefits. A bit more... When I was in the military, the term generally used for an other-than-honorable discharge was "General" ... which meant that no great harm was done during the person's service, but that the service was not really up to expected standards. The most severe form of administrative discharge, of course, is "Dishonorable." That is reserved, generally, for criminals, traitors and deserters. ( Full Answer )
Supposedly it comes from the abbreviation "HUA," meaning Heard-Understood-Acknowledged, but it's most likely just something used to give motivation, since Marines are notorious for being motivated. Hoorah, hurrah, hooray, hurray are variants which all mean agreement, approval, celebration or just p…lain happiness. The etymology is a mystery, but these words are found in written English at least a century before the establishment of the USMC which casts considerable doubt on the HUA explanation. ( Full Answer )

Only enlisted personnel in the United States military branches are generally bound to a specific service requirement, which is at this time eight years (at least four of active duty, and the balance of inactive reserve service). Officers in the U.S. military generally serve at their pleasure and …may resign their commissions at any time... though deployed personnel must of course wait for the end of their current tour. The exception to this rule is when specific training is tied to a service commitment. For example, an officer who received four years of tuition through a Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) program, will be required to 'repay' this through a specified number of years of service, typically four years, after which they would serve until they resign. Another excellent example is for other expensive and lengthy training, such as pilot training. Another exception is that sometimes accepting a promotion (notably to O-4/Major) may require a service commitment. It is for this reason that there are occasional situations where an officer may request being passed over for promotion, or refuse one awarded. These regulations change with time, and one's officer recruiter should be consulted for specific current regulations. ( Full Answer )

The United States Marine Corps ( USMC ) is a branch of the United States Armed Forces responsible for providing power projection from the sea,  using the mobility of the United States Navy to deliver combined-arms task forces rapidly. It is one of seven uniformed services of the United States. …In the civilian leadership structure of the United States military, the Marine Corps is a component of the United States Department of the Navy,   often working closely with U.S. naval forces for training, transportation, and logistic purposes; however, in the military leadership structure the Marine Corps is a separate branch.  Captain Samuel Nicholas formed two battalions of Continental Marines on 10 November 1775 in Philadelphia as naval infantry.  Since then, the mission of the Marine Corps has evolved 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 practices 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 rapidly respond on short notice to expeditionary crises gives it a strong role in the implementation and execution of American foreign policy.  ( Full Answer )

The Marine Corps was formed as a sea borne ground force of sorts, whose primary mission was the protection of Naval ships and bases. Over time that role has evolved into being much more similar to the nations 911 force, a force in readiness that could respond anywhere in the world on short notice. T…oday they remain in that role, maintaining forward deployed Marine Expeditionary Units (MEUs) to respond to anything that arises that the President needs to respond to. Whether it be humanitarian disasters such the earthquake in Haiti or the Tsunami in the Pacific, Marines have responded to the nations call ever time. In wartime, the Marine Corps is typically used as a hard hitting assault force which while great for combined arms destruction of our nations enemy was never structured for a long term sustained occupation overseas. With the aid of the other branches even this role has been filled in the last decade. ( Full Answer )
