    The National Security Act Amendments of 1949 provided that the

Commandant of the Marine Corps,

Headquarters, U.S. Marine Corps, 2 Navy Annex, Washington, DC 20380-1775
Phone, 703-614-1034. Internet, www.usmc.mil.

The United States Marine Corps was established on November 10, 1775, by 
resolution of the Continental Congress. Marine Corps composition and 
functions are detailed in 10 U.S.C. 5063.
    The Marine Corps, which is part of the Department of the Navy, is 
the smallest of the Nation's combat forces and is the only service 
specifically tasked by Congress to be able to fight in the air, on land, 
and at sea. Although marines fight in each of these dimensions, they are 
primarily a maritime force, inextricably linked with the Navy to move 
from the sea to fight on land.
    The Marine Corps conducts entry-level training for its enlisted 
marines at two bases, Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Parris Island, SC, and 
Marine Corps Recruit Depot, San Diego, CA. Officer candidates are 
evaluated at Officer Candidate School at Marine Corps Combat Development 
Command, Quantico, VA. Marines train to be first on the scene to respond 
to attacks on the United States or its interests, acts of political 
violence against Americans abroad, disaster relief, humanitarian 
assistance, or evacuation of Americans from foreign countries.
