Operational Overview
From ancient history to present day there has always been a Marine Corps.
In the Roman Empire they had 2 legions trained for warfare on land and sea. The German Empire had 3 sea (Marines) battalions. The Ottoman empire had up to 50,000 Marines. Novogod had its Uskhiuniks, who were irregular Marines the last of the old Viking tradition. The UK established a Maritime Regiment of foot in 1664. Portugal established a Naval Infantry Corps in 1621. And Spanish Navy Marines are the oldest Marine Force in history, established on February 27,1537 by Charles 1st when he permanently assigned the Naples Old Sea Companies to the Mediterranean Galley Squadron.
In todays time there are 51 nations that have a Marine Corps Units, with the United States with the biggest Corps
So as you can see as humans went to sea, they need a Few Good Men to protect them.
