Cool Quotable Marine Quotes

- Ted Williams, Baseball Hall of Famer

I earned my stripes as a Marine, and the Corps gets full credit for straightening me out. At 17, I was young, I was unhappy, and most of all, I was undisciplined. The Marine Corps was the right service in the right place at the right time."

The Marine Corps taught me that I could achieve my goals. In short, the Marines made me believe in myself."
- Gregory Alan-Williams, award winning actor and author

"Every Marine is, first and foremost, a rifleman. All other conditions are secondary."
- General A.M. Gray, USMC

"Lying offshore, ready to act, the presence of ships and Marines sometimes means much more than just having air power or ship's fire, when it comes to deterring a crisis. And the ships and Marines may not have to do anything but lie offshore. It is hard to lie offshore with a C-141 or C-130 full of airborne troops."
- Gen. Colin L. Powell, USA

"...at all times ready and prompt in the execution of any duty."
- Col Robert E. Lee, Harper's Ferry, 1859.

If I use words like 'brilliant,' it would really be an under description of the absolutely superb job that they did in breaching the so-called 'impenetrable barrier.' It was a classic- absolutely classic- military breaching of a very very tough minefield, barbed wire, fire trenches-type barrier."
- Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf, Commander, U.S. Central Command, February 1991

Sempers,

Roger

- Father Kevin Keaney, 1st MarDiv Chaplain, Korean War

"Over the years the Marines had built up a deserved reputation for bravery, devotion to duty and never striking their colors. This was part of the living tradition of the Corps, for which even the rawest recruit cherished as an inspiration...

This was the particular contribution of the Marine Corps."
- Paul Douglas, United States Senator

"The Marine Corps taught me that I could achieve my goals. In short, the Marines made me believe in myself."
- Gregory Alan-Williams, award winning actor and author

"Fortunately God loves the Marines."
- Samuel Eliot Morison, 1951

"...we also receive from them [Marines past] the eternal spirit which has animated our Corps from generation to generation... So long as that spirit continues to flourish Marines will be found equal to every emergency in the future as they have in the past, and the men of the Nation will regard us as worthy successors to the long line of illustrious men who have served..."
- General John A. Lejeune, Commandant, USMC, Marine Corps Birthday Message, 1921
