In March 1776, the Continental Marines performed America's first amphibious assault, seizing the British island of New Providence in the Bahamas. Since that time, U.S. Marines have stormed Derna, Tripoli; helped quash China's Boxer Rebellion; and, famously, raised the flag on Iwo Jima's Mount Suribachi. These are just a few highlights of more than two-and-a-quarter centuries of outstanding service.
