The Marine Corps has long set itself apart from all other service branches.  Since our inception Marines have been developing and refining the art of war.  We have always been at the forefront of every major operation.  Dealing death to the enemy.  Marines answer the call of duty with fanaticism.  Toward the sound of gunfire!

Our Corps runs deep with history and tradition.  The greatest of us become legends amongst men.  Holding tightly to our Core Values of Honor, Courage, and Commitment.  We never waiver because the Espirit de Corps of the Marines before us burns brightly from within.

We have set ourselves apart from any other service branch.  Since the first ones of us were recruited in a little bar called Tun Tavern, in Philadelphia, 1775.  Hell, they needed the crazy bar brawling type of men.  The men that were crazy enough to take to the high seas against the largest naval force on earth, Great Britain.

One of the obvious thing that sticks out is our entire language.  Our Marine Corp’s jargon.  Jargon is defined as “special words or expressions used by a particular group and are difficult for others to understand.”  Jargon refers to slang, terms, or acronyms that Marines use in the their daily lives.  These may seem commonplace to us, yet can be confusing to outsiders, even from a Marine’s particular MOS.
