????Excuse me? No offense, but Marines have that distinction. May I remind you (just as an example) of "Black Hawk Down" 'incident'... The Marines were sent in first and kicked butt and secured the place, handed it over to the Army( Ranger and Delta) and THEN the fiasco. There's many examples of such occasions (where in fact, the Marines lead the way).

I knew a few Marines who reenlisted in the Army to go Ranger....
Some of them made it. LOL
