WASHINGTON. D. C Observance
of the 160th anniversary of tho
United States Marine corps this
month recalls the vivid and eventful
history of this famous organization.
Contrary to popular opinion, the
marines as a fighting unit are not
of recent origin. More than 300
years ago, when tho heavy gun re
placed the ram as the principal
weapon of naval offense, the marines
came into being. It was then dis
covered that an auxiliary of trained
lighting men was an invaluable
adjunct to the force of sailors man
ning the ship and ship's puns.
. Marines did yeomen service for the
colonies during the American Revo
lution,. At that time the personnel of
Jthe average crew, often forced into
'Service by "press gangs", was such
that the marines were needed, not
only to fight the enemy, but also to !
keep down possible mutiny or dis
order on the ship.
Marine Prove Mettle
During tho war of 1812, the naval
operations on the Uarbary coast and
during the Civil war the marines
performed with valor. After tho wur
between the states it was proposed
that tho marines be disbanded. The
argument ended in their favor with
tho Spanish-American war. however,
when they proved their worth as an
expeditionary force to supplement
the regular strength of the navy.
Tho marine corps is headed by a
major general commandant with
offices at Washington, under juris
diction of the secretary of the navy.
Training depots are located at
Quantico, Va., nnd at San Diego, Cal.
Tho number of marines stationed
aboard ships of the fleet comprise
about 10 per cent of the fleet person
Marines not stationed aboard ship
are in barracks in or near principal
naval slaliuiis. 1 liev are organized
in regiments to (permit ready mobili
zation in case of an' outbreak which
requires their services to protect
American life or property in foreign
Russell Present Commandant
The .marine can lie landed on
loroiyn soil without a declaration of
war or without the implication of a
state of hostilities existing.
Major General John Henry Ilussell
is now commandant of the marine
corps. He was appointed last year
to succeed Major General Upii II.
Tho marine corps is a small but
highly trained organization compris
ing artillery. Infantry, machine gun,
signal and engineering units.
Uncle Sam s "Icvil Dogs" have hafl
a colorful and eventful history. They
have served in the I'hihppinea during
native uprisings, helped to quell the
Boxer rebellion in China, and saw
action in Nicaragua and Haiti.
