Alert and ready, we respond to today’s crisis with today’s force…..TODAY. Marines are always ready to respond whenever the Nation calls…wherever the President may direct.

  4. The Marine Corps’ Right to Exist “The Marine Corps has fully demonstrated the vital need for the existence of a strong force in readiness. Such a force, versatile, fast-moving, and hard-hitting, will constantly have a powerful impact in relation to minor international disturbances… Such a force can prevent the growth of potentially large conflagrations by prompt and vigorous action during their incipient states … The nation’s shock troops must be the most ready when the nation is generally least ready… to provide a balanced force in readiness for a naval campaign and, at the same time, a ground and air striking force ready to suppress or contain international disturbances short of large-scale war.” 82nd Congress - 1952
