A Marine may leave the Corps… but the Corps will NEVER leave the Marine!
There are only two kinds of people that understand Marines: Marines and the enemy. Everyone else has a second-hand opinion.
Freedom is not free, but the U.S. Marine Corps will pay most of your share.
A Marine is a Marine. I set that policy two weeks ago - there's no such thing as a former Marine. You're a Marine, just in a different uniform and you're in a different phase of your life. But you'll always be a Marine because you went to Parris Island, San Diego or the hills of Quantico. There's no such thing as a former Marine.
I come in peace, I didn't bring artillery. But I am pleading with you with tears in my eyes: If you mess with me, I'll kill you all.

Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. But, the Marines don't have that problem.
Marines I see as two breeds, Rottweilers or Dobermans, because Marines come in two varieties, big and mean, or skinny and mean. They're aggressive on the attack and tenacious on defense. They've got really short hair and they always go for the throat.
For over 221 years our Corps has done two things for this great Nation. We make Marines, and we win battles.
A Marine should be sworn to the patient endurance of hardships, like the ancient knights; and it is not the least of these necessary hardships to have to serve with sailors.
You cannot exaggerate about the Marines. They are convinced to the point of arrogance, that they are the most ferocious fighters on earth- and the amusing thing about it is that they are.
The Marine Corps has just been called by the New York Times, 'The elite of this country.' I think it is the elite of the world.
The deadliest weapon in the world is a Marine and his rifle.
