Colonial Marine in Standard Assault Gear and NCO in Standard Khaki

The Colonial Marine Corps are the ground soldiers of the Twelve Colonies, a different branch of the military than the Colonial Fleet. As with the CF the CMC has a Reserve Component. Battlestar Galactica has about thirty of them left, although there are no snipers among them.

A Marine's duties include guarding the CIC and brig and assisting the Master-at-Arms. They have been used several times on Raptors for boarding parties. They are also responsible for repelling enemy boarding actions.

There are no more officers stationed on Galactica; when they are on missions, Fleet officers command the Marine units.

I think a Marine Detachment on a Battlestar has at least one or two officers! But Marines can also be commanded by Fleet Officers.

And I think there are other Ground Forces on the colonies, not only Marines.
Marines are specialized forces ALSO assigned to Battlestars.
