Devil Dog comes from Tuefelhuden. The nickname was given to the Marine Brigade in 1918 at the Battle of Belleau Wood by the German troops in recogintion of their fighting ability.

The main difference in Army Troops and Marines is the mission. Marines are an amphibious expeditionary force.

the main difference between a US Marine and a army soldier goes way beyond the mission. yes our mission is different but as is our training and our general SOP for everything. and i dont know how to explain it but its much different from just the mission.

PFC. I don't believe he was asking about esprit de corps, traditions, etc. He was asking about the difference in duties the way I read it.

The Marine Corps specializes in Amphibious Assaults. The Generally deploy as a smaller force than the Army . Their Mission in a nutshell is to seize and secure Advanced Naval Bases and conduct Amphibous operations.

Marines provide Security for the United States Embassies around the world.
Naval Stations around the World.
Provide security for the Capital Ships of the fleet.
And provide the Fleet Anti -terrorist Security Teams for the fleet.

The United States Marine Corps is the smallest of the services. Yet constantly deploys Battilion Landing Teams (BLT) and Marine Expeditionary Units (MEU) aboard Naval Vessels as a rapid deployment force.
