General James Mattis Quote

“For the mission’s sake, for our country’s sake, and the sake of the men who carried the Division’s colors in past battles — “who fought for life and never lost their nerve” — carry out your mission and keep your honor clean.

Demonstrate to the world there is “No Better Friend, No Worse Enemy” than a U.S. Marine.

Marine Corps Motivational Posters

…These Marines have the swagger; confidence, and hardness that must have been in Stonewall Jackson’s Army of the Shenandoah. They remind me of the Coldstreams at Dunkerque.
—A British military officer visiting the U.S. Marines in Korea included the above in his daily report to the British command in Tokyo, 16 Aug. 1950

USMC Quotes: The Honorable John H. Dalton

The development of the concept of amphibious warfare was initiated by Marine Corps Commandants who combined authority with conviction and knowledge.
From its origins during the tenures of Commandants John Lejeune, Wendell Neville, and Benjamin Fuller, through the establishment of the Fleet Marine Force under General John H. Russell, all Naval Academy graduates, the development of the Marine Corps as America’s expeditionary force was the result of leadership.
It was backed by the experience of campaigns in the Caribbean, Central America, the Pacific and China. These leaders spoke with authority in directing new ideas because they had experienced the old ideas and borne the scars.

The Honorable John H. Dalton, Secretary of the Navy, “Timeless Traits of Leadership”, USNA Graduation, Annapolis, MD, 31 May 1995.

USMC Quotes: CMC General James L. Jones

“At the very heart of the Corps and its relationship to each Marine is our service culture. The Marine Corps is sui generis – that is, we have a nature that is distinct from all others.
This goes beyond the unique characteristics of our expeditionary Marine Air-Ground Task Forces which are always prepared to be deployed overseas.
It, in fact, pertains to our warrior ethos. From the individual Marine to our institution as a whole, our model is the thinking and stoic warrior who fights more intelligently than his enemy and is inured to hardship and challenges.”

CMC, General James L. Jones, June 13, 2001

USMC Quotes: Jim Webb

“Friends are found on the battlefield, and unfortunately friends are also lost.

And where do we find the measure of that sacrifice?

How can we account for the value of that loss?

Sometimes we can find an answer in our sense of country, at other times in our Corps.

But clearly we can see it in the lives that were able to continue due to the acts of others who were not so fortunate.”

Jim Webb, 2000

United States Marine Quotes: Maj Gen John A. Lejeune

“The future success of the Marine Corps depends on two factors: first, an efficient performance of all duties to which its officers and men may be assigned; second, promptly bringing this efficiency to the attention of the proper officials of the government, and the American people.”

MajGen John A. Lejeune, 13th CMC

Moto Quote Of The Day

“Just as a horse must have endurance and no defects, so it is with weapons.
Horses should walk strongly, and swords and companion swords should cut strongly. Spears and halberds must stand up to heavy use: bows and guns must be sturdy.
Weapons should be hardy rather than decorative.”

Miyamoto Musashi’s book of Strategy, the “Ground Book”, second year of Shoho, the fifth month, the twelfth day. (1645)
