Why do marines get more respect than the other military branches?

Report as

Because we are the BEST. We are the first in and the last out, the ones with the most discipline. Marines are taught values, we are taught the history. Marines win the battles!

I am guessing because they are at higher risks then other branches, but I could be wrong.

it depends on what your definition of respectable is. their BMT is harder physically but the Airforce is more challenging from an educational standpoint. Marines are bullet catchers.

I agree except for the part about being bullet catchers ... I see them as bullet THROWERS.

They have the best P.R. people. They're famous for teaching recruits their amazing history and installing their values. They're a smaller branch than the Army, they use older weapons but get the harder missions. They deserve their reputation.

Their "high n'tights". The few and the proud. First to go last to know. Marines are the defenders of U.S. Embassies around the globe. The USMC is Americas 911 force.
GET SUM!!!

I'd have to be patient a month/month and a half at least, then I could go nuts on them, all I wanted...

that's good to know. Oh wait (sigh). I wish they were the defenders of the Mexican Embassy as well. :(

They're always the first ones to enter into battle. They do what the other branches do not want to do. The marines best friends are the navy and the air force though.

They have been elevated to that status by their own outstanding service record, and the myth has been expanded by the media and popular culture. However in reality all branches have elite units, each with excellent histories and traditions. While rivalry exists among the various branches, and it promotes a sense of esprit-de-corps, we are all a team, each with its own responsibilities. Think of it as a Football team, the QB or RB my get more of the praise but without a combined effort none of us would win.

Myth??? please explain what you mean by "myth"....
Report as
As in Hype, Legend, Stereotype, Folklore, etc..
Report as
Yes I understand what "myth" means. What I want to know is how the Marines outstanding service is a myth.
Report as
Stand down son! You obviously don't understand the term, if you're unable to see relation when used with "popular culture" You probably also think ignorant means stupid, don't ya?
Report as
Okay boys...you're BOTH pretty okay?

I have been chatting with Major Peters here. We agree that ALL branches of the military are each as important as another. I am proud to have all of you who serve to protect my country. Hubster's last assignment was as a Screamin' Eagle. We are proud of everyone who serves.
Report as
So you've tried the major peters, what do you think? Regular or spicy?
Report as
They only had regular, and I just started the drink. But it is delicious. I can ask the liquor store (BevMo) to order the spicy one.

Semper Fi glenjy!

Because to be a marine, you have to be a lot more than physically strong. You have to put both of your feet forward and pray you land correctly because if not, your DI is gunna beat the snot out of ya. SEMPER FI!

I don't respect them more than my husband who is Army, but the Marines have better looking dress uniforms.

I was in the Marines, the 82nd airborne is an awesome fighting force as well, they have the cool maroon berets, we have the dress blues!

I think is because the training is much harder to pass. Also, like everyone here said they are the first and the last. In any case, I am thankful we have them, and also all the brave men and women out there fighting.
