Susan Your Questions About Commandant Of The Marine Corps

Susan asks…

What is the clause that separates the US Marine Corp from the NAvy?

Rumor has it that The Marine Corp has been separated from the Navy since 1984. THe policies and traditions of the Marine Corps come from the NAvy but The commandant of the Marine Corps has its own chair in the joint chief of staff meetings. Their anual budget is aprooved by the NAvy or is it independent? How does that work?

Our pick of the answers:

1. “Manila John” Basilone was on Iwo Jima for only 90 minutes before he was killed in a mortar attack. He did not see the flag raised on Mt. Surabachi.

2. I cannot find any reference to a CMC being dishonorably discharged. A search of “commandant +dishonorable” brought up nothing about the Marines. Would be interested to see if that has happened, though.

3. On 1 November 1921, General John A. Lejeune issued Marine Corps Order No. 47, Series 1921. The order summarized the history, mission, and tradition of the Corps, and directed that it be read to every command on 10 November each subsequent year in honor of the birthday of the Marine Corps. This order has been duly carried out.

4. Samuel Nicholas became the first Marine officer in 1775, Opha Mae Johnson became the first female Marine in 1918 and Carol A. Mutter became the first female major general in 1994.
