Then they wouldn't be Marines, but Navy personnel. Like the Army gives you the option to volunteer for Rangers of Airborne, but you're still part of the Army.

Just like the SEALs are still a part of the Navy, but they do more Spec-Ops material.

It is pretty much exactly how the Air Force was part of the Army. Just there is really no reason to seperate the two yet.

At first the Marine Corps (take note it Marine with a capital M) was a branch of the military, but the Navy decided they needed some one to protect them. Also depending on how you look at it the Marine Corps was the first. The Army and Navy may have been created before the Corps but the Marines were fighting before either branch, hence "First To Fight". But while in Formation it goes Army, Marines, Navy, and Air Force bringing up the rear.
