Topic: Marines can get sent out to where???


Ive been talking to some people and it turns out that almost everyone from every branch can get sent out to stations practically everywhere.... EXCEPT the marines! I hear that the only station in East Asia that the Marines can get sent out to is Japan.... this true? what about Korea, CHina, and all that good stuff?

I think I've seen US Marines in Korea but I think they don't have a major permanent base there. I think it's just small presence. The rest of the guys would be in Japan.

Embassies, we have embassies in many countries around the world, if you are lucky you can get on a detail that protects the Embassy in China or something, if that is what you want.

As far as I know, the Marines only have 4 permanent bases overseas. Puerto Rico, Japan, and a couple in the middle of the Pacific. Perhaps one of the Marines that are members here can tell you more.

But the Marines are also on the Navy ships, and they can travel to almost every major port in the world, if you want to see the world join the Navy, but remember, 70% of the world is covered in water.

The major Marine bases in the Pacific are in California, Hawaii, and Okinawa. Marines also serve as embassy guards, and guards at naval bases for nuclear weapons storage areas.

Marines are stationed in the spots that make the most sense for rapid deployment to anywhere on the globe. We may not have a permanent station there but we will get there anyway.

You could probably list a handful of nations that are "hosts" to the Marines now (i.e. peace keeping forces in Haiti.)

Certain U.S. Naval Stations have Marine Barracks that are responsible for the security of the Station.
