ycheck, but it should also come with deep personal satisfaction and the knowledge that your efforts are leading somewhere worth going. Feeling that you are contributing to something larger than yourself is an excellent motivator. The fact that you have chosen to read a report on careers in the United States Marine Corps says very clearly that you want a career that will definitely lead you to places worth going, and that you don’t mind overcoming a few challenges to get there. Whether you commit to a long-term career or just stay in the service long enough to learn valuable skills and have an adventure or two, the Marine Corps may be the place for you. The smallest of the four military services (the smaller Coast Guard is the lead agency in the Department of Homeland Security and only falls under the Department of Defense in time of war), the Marine Corps has the most enviable reputation. The reputation is so unassailable that the Marine Corps is the only service never to have trouble gaining new recruits, even in time of war. To be a US Marine is to be part of one of the world’s truly elite fighting forces. This reputation is fostered in part by the catchiest recruiting slogan ever used by a military service: “The Few. The Proud. The Marines.” Created in the 1960s by advertising firm J. Walter Thompson, the slogan was conceived as a way to turn the relatively small size of the Corps into an asset. The slogan has proven to be so durable that Advertising Week, the largest and most prestigious annual gathering of advertising and media industry leaders in North America named it one of the top 100 advertising slogans of all time. There is much more to the Marines than a catchy recruiting slogan, however. Much more. Trained as assault troops, Marines specialize in a form of warfare known as amphibious assault. The word “marine,” means “from the sea.” What Marines have traditionally done in wartime is invade hostile territory from the sea. In the military, this is known as “kicking down doors” or “grabbing a bit of beach.” It is a critical part of the continuum of warfare. Today’s Marine Corps counts nearly 200,000 active-duty Marines and 40,000 reservists. Although the smallest of the US armed services, the Corps is still much larger than most of the rest of the world’s fighting forces. Officially part of the Department of the Navy, the Corps functions as an independent service led by a commandant who serves on the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Together, the Navy-Marine Corps Team can put more power in more places than any other force in history. Think you have what it takes to be a part of it?
