    The last opposed landing they took place in was in Korea - Inchon in 1950.

    Amphibious invasions are history.

    Marines should be consolidated into the other branches of the military.

    You really don't know what they do do ya?
    Visit an American Legion Post or a VFW Post and you will find out what they have been doing since 1950up until this very day.

    Although I have not had very many good encounters with most Marines, I have met a few good ones.

    Their mission is the same as all other branches, to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. That does not mean their only going to do it when their are beaches to storm.

    Harry Truman tried to make that point ...just before he found out that he couldn't even get his own party to support his 2nd term. The Marines are older than the Country. I hope you didn't try to tell relatives of 6,000 Marines who were killed in a month taking Iwo Jima in WW2 that they were obsolete.

    Iwo Jima is a thing of the past- never to be repeated.
