Silent Drill Platoon

The Marine Corps Resource: History, uniforms and exciting jobs in the Corps!


Iwo Jima Memorial "From the halls of Montezuma, to the shores of Tripoli..." Marines have fought brilliantly and courageously since 1775, maintaining a proud tradition of being the best of the best. Never once has a Marine left another wounded or dead in combat. Two Marines have each earned two Medals of Honor. Astronaut John Glenn was a Marine. Despite having to rely on hand-me downs from other branches, and many times being in danger of disbandment, Marines have proven that they are matched by no one.

These pages are dedicated to the men and women who have and will earn the title of United States Marine.
