Construction on the battlefield is dangerous. It takes 10 Marines five days to build a structure from wood. This first-in-the-world, onsite continuous concrete print not only produces stronger shelters, but frees Marines to do what they do best: fight and win. Four Marines can build a strong structure in less than two days. #BattlesWon

To earn the title of United States Marine, recruits must overcome “The Crucible,” a 54-hour culminating event that requires them to work as a team and overcome their own fears and weaknesses as they learn to fight together to win our Nation’s battles.
It's a bond, a brotherhood, between fellow Marines and with the Corps that will last a lifetime.

The attack on Pearl Harbor December 7, 1941, marked the beginning of the war in the Pacific theatre.

Every Marine a rifleman.
MCB Camp Pendleton’s Marksmanship Training Unit (MTU) is dedicated to honing the skills learned in recruit training.
During their annual rifle qualification, Marines must face down stress and scrutiny on the rifle range. Committed to excellence and precision, Marines maintain proficient combat marksmanship and the ability to act under pressure.

Men and women who become Marines have a strong determination to act in the face of crisis – an inherent willingness and readiness to fight and win any battle. Aspiring Marine, Christian Hankins with @rs_freddie, proved he had that #FightingSpirit when he rescued a disabled man who had been trapped in his car by raging floodwaters in Danville, VA, in 2018. His mind firmly targeted on victory, he's already living his life by the Corps' values of Honor, Courage, and Commitment.

In any clime and place, Marines have the determination and skill to be victorious. Amphibious operations eliminate the need to disembark and swap vehicles when Marines reach shore. A vehicle effective on water and on land provides speed and extreme effectiveness, keeping Marines prepared to fight and win.
