Editorial Reviews

The Marine Corps has long signified the ultimate in courage and patriotism and it's been around longer than America has been an independent nation. This fascinating PBS special traces the history of the Corps, utilizing unprecedented access to a wealth of archival materials that prove why the Marines have been, throughout their storied history, America's first choice when trouble breaks out. 2007/color/90 min/NR/widescreen.

I saw this video on PBS a month ago and loved it. It does a great job of explaining what the Marine Corp is all about. I went through OCS in 1970, so for me it was interesting to see what had changed and what has remained the same. Surprisingly, my wife watched the whole video with me. I thought that she would humor me for 5 or 10 minutes but that was not the case. She loved it and said it made her understand me and my love for the Marines.

"The Marines" is a well-produced piece that gives a great overview of the process of making a Marine, both enlisted and officer level. This video will provide a background for gaining an understanding into the culture of the Marine Corps. Highly recommended.

My son is giving thought to joining the Corps and this was truly a great reflection of what can be expected and experienced!

Served in the United States Marine Corps from 1963 to 1969. My father was on Guadalcanal in WWII. He will always be my hero.
Serving my country was an honor which provided me a privledge greater than one can imagine. To live in the United States of
American in freedom. All those who have served in uniform provided us this precious gift. To my brothers and sisters serving today,
Semper Fi, I love you all.

I saw this on PBS and was riveted. It's really well done. I ended up buying it for my brother who was a Marine. I'm not a flag-waving, military type, but watching this gave me an appreciation for what he went through and how and why being a Marine gave him focus and discipline.

As a Marine 65-70 it reminded me of how Marines feel inside forever. And no one can understand unless they been there.

This is the kind of stuff one never sees unless you joined the Marines. My late son who was a Marine told us about what he did in the Corps, Interesting but always wondered how much is true. After watching "The Marines" I know what he went through.

Good for former and current Marines and their friends and family. It's a bit of a recuiting film which leads to a lose of credibility. Otherwise, it shows a good deal of what we went through in training. There was an outright error in the film about women training. Women began training similiar to men's training by at least 1982 which is longer than 20 years ago.
