Mission
We are the foundation of the Marine Corps’ ability to “make Marines, win our nation’s battles, and return quality citizens to the communities of America.” Now, more than ever, the Fleet Marine Force requires its Marines to be flexible thinkers, capable of making strategic decisions at the lowest levels.  It is our mission to find those qualified and capable young people who are worthy of earning the title ‘United States Marine.’
