Why do the US Marines get more respect than the other branches?
The Marines are asked to do the hard jobs that others don't. They're the first ones to hit the beach or storm a stronghold. They set high standards and attract the best.
b-c training is alot harder and they are prepared for anything
Marines do more for they're country
Because they are "the few, the proud."
The sea is a hard maiden to please. Seriously though, they are at the mercy of the sea which is pretty unpredictable at times.
