Category:U.S. Marine Corps (USMC)
The United States Marines have defended and fought for the American people since before the Continental Congress approved the Declaration of Independence. Congress authorized two battalions of Marines on November 10, 1775 - the official birth of the Marine Corps.
Since its inception, the Marine Corps has celebrated a legacy unlike any other. Its force is rich in history and traditions - upholding three core values that are at the soul of its institution: honor, courage and commitment. (United States Marine Corps)
SG-3 was originally an all-Marine unit. There are still Marines involved in the security of the SGC base, as well as that of the Atlantis Outpost in the Pegasus Galaxy.
