Marine Slang To Learn If You Don't Want To Be A 'Squid'

Updated 22 Aug 2019 31.6k views20 items

Falling under the jurisdiction of the Department of the Navy, the United States Marine Corps has conducted land and sea operations since the American Revolution. As one of the four branches of the military, the Marine Corps works alongside the Navy, Army, and Air Force; distinguishing itself from the Halls of Montezuma to the Shores of Tripoli.

The Marine Corps has a language, culture, and heritage all its own, from acronyms to skin art. If you're looking to join the Marines and become a jarhead (as opposed to a squid), you're going to want to learn some Marine lingo. Whether you're a boot or the Grand Old Man of the Marine Corp, there are a bunch of Marine terms you can try out at the squad bay.
