    Marine Corps. vs Army

    Pros and Cons of both? I have heard a lot talk about the Army being a lumbering beast that can't get anything done, or the Marine Corps. be way too gung ho to get the job done... Anyway, I want differing opinions.

    The US Marine Corps is the designated "force in readiness." In other words, when it hits the fan, while the Army is getting geared up, the Marines are already kicking ass and taking names.

    The Marines provide security for all US Embassies, under Title 10 USC §5983.

    So, when a job needs to be done right, and done right away, DoD policy is to give it to the Marines.

    And that's the fact, jack!

    Both are designed to kill our Enemies...I can't find fault in that.

    Where's the problem?

    The Marines have their own air combat element consisting of rotary wing and fixed wing, that can supply XCAS, CAS, A/G and A/A coverage over a specific battleground area.

    We do need the Navy for a ride over though.

    The Army typically deploys for longer periods of time than Marines do. The typical Marine deployment is 6-7 months before rotating back. The Army has been keeping guys overseas for 15-18 months at a time.

    Thats one pro/con I can think of off the top of my head that isn't just some back and forht boasting between the branches.

    Well the Navy controls our budget, so we do what any great military organization would do. Improvise, adapt and overcome.
