Famous Marines

or; Great Men of the U.S. Marine Corps

This page is dedicated to men that have had a significant impact on
the United States, and history through their lives after the U.S. Marines.
While one may debate the "Greatness" or "Fame" of these men, the fact remains
that each of them sacrificed a few years of their lives in the
interest of preserving the freedom to debate.

Have the name of somebody that went on to great pinnacles after time with
the Marines? Send me a mail at famousmarines *AT SIGN* famousmarines *DOT* us with their name and what they did.


Many hardchargers out there have been on the ball with getting me the names of Marines I've missed. However, with summer here and being in the middle of dive season, I've updated this site with the speed of government paperwork. Please accept my sincerest apology, and be advised that I will be merging in all additional names sent WITH CREDIT GIVEN to each contributor. There's no I in TEAM, and I couldn't have possibly gathered all the additional names that you've all contributed to the board. Thanks, and a big Ooo-rah.
