There are more Marines in power now than ever before. Here’s how it happened.

By Todd South - MarineCorpsTimes.Com

There are more Marines in top military and civilian positions at the highest levels of government.

F or much of the Marine Corps’ history its top leaders have fought for a place at the table, having to elbow the larger services with much bigger budgets just to stay in the game.

Lionhearted Marines had died in droves fighting ­during both World Wars, Korea and Vietnam. But in many eras, the smallest branch’s official role has been limited to the Navy’s maritime expeditionary arm, which has had to make do with less money, ­manpower and priorities as its sister services, which have long steered the military aspects of national security policy.
But, now, for the first time, there are more Marines in top military and civilian positions at the highest levels of government.

Right now a retired or uniformed  Marine holds the seat of secretary of defense White House chief of staff chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff ,  head of Africa Command and incoming head of United States Central Command.
