Marine Corps Quotes: RAdm David D. Porter

Carl | July 16, 2012 

“If the Marines are abolished half the efficiency of the Navy will be destroyed.

They are as necessary to the well being of a ship as the officers.

Instead of decreasing the Corps, I would rather hope to see a large increase, for we feel the want of Marines very much.”

RAdm David D. Porter in letter to Col Commandant John Harris, 6th CMC, 6 December 1863
