re: Different roles each branch of the military take in crisis or wartime
The Marines are a specialized quick response force. They are specialized to provide a "first in" response force, or as some have said, taking a position. Marine Expeditionary Units are put together expressly to be able to be mobilized quickly. Responsible for Executive rotary wing transportation. Also responsible for embassy security. Unless someone can correct me, I believe every naval ship also still has a Marine Detachment on board.

The Army is the general combat force, and also has the largest number of troops, mechanized units, and artillery. As some have said, to "hold the position."

The Air Force provides air superiority over the battlefield. Also provides realtime reconnaissance, Aerial cargo delivery, and satellite surveillance. Air Force operates 2/3 of our strategic nuclear arsenal (conventional bombs, ballistic missiles.)They also fly the President and other officials around.

The Navy, of course, is responsible for the sea. The modern Navy is used in projection of force (Carrier battle groups) and is the only navy that is currently able to do so in the world. Operates the other 1/3 of the strategic nuclear arsenal.

Very abridged, and I'm sure I missed a lot, but hope it helps.

I remember being in Lajes right before the first Gulf War seeing representatives of just about everything in the AF inventory on the ramp, thinking somebody is about to get their arse kicked but good.

If you've ever been running low on gas and can't find the tanker, you'll forever kiss the AF(AWACS) arse.

Hard to belive they mothballed the F117 stealth. We throw away shite that most countries would love to have.

When are Seals vs Green Berets used?


Doctrinally, SEALS are a maritime force, Army Special Forces lean toward land based guerilla warfare, raising indigenous armies, etc.

In the real world, it gets very murky. For example, Army Special Forces have more qualified combat divers than the SEALS, and the SEALS have more qualified free-fall parachutists than the Green Berets. Basically, they all try to be jacks of all trades, and whoever has the most influence at the moment gets the mission. This translates into more $$ at budget time.

There are times when their mission is public, to show the flag, civic action, etc. When they need to be sneaky, they can be just as sneaky as anyone else, if not moreso.
