The United States Marine Corps is one of the most elite military forces in the world, and they strive to always be the best at everything they do. The official Marine Corps motto is Semper Fidelis, which is Latin for “Always Faithful.” And when it comes to photographs, the Marines seem to be always faithful when capturing the service and work of those in the Corps.
The official USMC Flickr account is full of stunning, patriotic images of men and women serving in all types of capacities and situations as Marines. The photographs show their service, hard work, fun side, and patriotic dedication to their country and their fellow Marines.
