The United States Marine Corps is the mightiest force on the planet while being the smallest, most elite section of the U.S. military with a long and colorful history. The stories being at the MCRDs or Marine Corps Recruit Depots at Parris Island and San Diego.

Many Marines come to the Reserve after serving on Active Duty, as the Reserve gives them an outlet to continue serving while pursuing a civilian career or furthering their education.
