The Marines I have seen around the world have the cleanest bodies, the filthiest minds, the highest morale, and the lowest morals of any group of animals I have ever seen. Thank God for the United States Marine Corps!
Eleanor Roosevelt, First Lady of the United States, 1945

Ooorah!

If you haven't already, read up on who formed the Marines (Thomas Jefferson) and why. Especially informative regarding today's world.
The Marine Corp was around for about 25 years before Jefferson was President. They were formed in 1775. Jefferson started his presidency about 1800. Jefferson did send the Marines to deal with the Barbary Pirates but by no means did he form them.
