The most senior Marine officer is the Commandant , responsible to the Secretary of the Navy for organizing, recruiting, training, and equipping the Marine Corps so that its forces are ready for deployment under the operational command of the Combatant Commanders. Since , the Marine Corps has maintained component headquarters at each of the regional unified combatant commands.

In general, the Marine Corps shares many resources with the other branches of the United States military. However, the Corps has consistently sought to maintain its own identity with regards to mission, funding, and assets, while utilizing the support available from the larger branches. While the Marine Corps has far fewer installations both in the U. They also cross train with other countries.

The Marine Corps combat capabilities in some ways overlap those of the United States Army , the latter having historically viewed the Corps as encroaching on the Army's capabilities and competing for funding, missions, and renown. The attitude dates back to the founding of the Continental Marines , when General George Washington refused to allow the initial Marine battalions to be drawn from among his Continental Army. Most significantly, in the aftermath of World War II, Army efforts to restructure the American defense establishment included the dissolution of the Corps and the folding of its capabilities into the other services.

However, the Army maintains much larger and diverse combat arms infantry, armor, artillery, special operations , ground transport, logistics, while the Marines have a more diverse aviation arm which constitutes a larger percentage of forces , and is usually organic to the MAGTF.

Marines operate as expeditionary units and are completely amphibious. The Marine Corps focus on standardized infantry units with the other arms in support roles as the "Every Marine a rifleman" creed shows.

The Marines often leverage the Army's acquisition of ground equipment as well as benefiting from Army research and development resources , training resources, and other support concepts.

One source states marines tend to decentralize and push leadership to lower levels, while fostering initiative to a greater degree. As a result, the Navy and Marine Corps have a close relationship, more so than with other branches of the military. Whitepapers and promotional literature have commonly used the phrase "Navy-Marine Corps Team", [77] [78] or refer to "the Naval Service".

Cooperation between the two services really begins with the training and instruction of Marines. Marine aviators are trained in the Naval Aviation training pipeline and are winged as Naval Aviators. Training alongside each other is viewed as critical, as the Navy provides transport, logistical, and combat support to put Marine units into the fight, for example, the Maritime Prepositioning ships and naval gunfire support.
