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.

James Mattis’s message to his Marines just before the 2003 invasion of Iraq

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

Quotes About Marines

“The intent of cultivating mental discipline is to produce Marines who are capable of understanding and handling the complexities of modern warfare; tactically and technically competent; capable of decision making under any combat condition; constantly thinking and situationally aware; and who posses the virtually instinctive impluse to do the right thing, for the right reason, in the right way.”

Captain Jamison Yi, USMC in “MCMAP and the Warrior Ethos”, Military Review, November-December 2004, page 23.

Quotes About Marines: RAdm C. M. Winslow

“I am inclined to think there is no military body in our country of higher efficiency than the Marine Corps. Of course their problems are simpler than ours.

Their esprit de corps is very high; they take great pride in their professionalism. They never let things slack a bit.”

RAdm C. M. Winslow, before the House Committee on Naval Affairs in 1916

USMC 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

Quotes About The Marine Corps: John A. Lejeune

“From the Battle of Trenton to the Argonne, Marines have won foremost honors in war, and in the long eras of tranquility at home, generation after generation of Marines have grown gray in war in both hemispheres and in every corner of the seven seas, that our country and its citizens might enjoy peace and security.”

John A. Lejeune, Marine Corps Birthday Message, Marine Corps Order No. 47, 1 November 1921

Quotes About The Marine Corps: RAdm David D. Porter

“If the Marines are abolished half the efficiency of the Navy will be destroyed.

They are as necessary to the well being of a ship as the officers.

Instead of decreasing the Corps, I would rather hope to see a large increase, for we feel the want of Marines very much.”

RAdm David D. Porter in letter to Col Commandant John Harris, 6th CMC, 6 December 1863

Marine Corps Quotes

“Since I first joined the Marines, I have advocated aggressiveness in the field and constant offensive action.
Hit quickly, hit hard and keep right on hitting.
Give the enemy no rest, no opportunity to consolidate his forces and hit back at you.”

LtGen H. M. “Howlin’ Mad” Smith: “Coral and Brass,” 1949
