USMC: Tour rotations? How many can one Marine do?

I was wondering how many Tour re-ups does one Marine have to go through in the duration of a 4 year enlistment contract? is there a limit of 3? or is it endless?

If it is 3 Tours per Marine, what does the Marine do after the completion of his tour? Stay state-side for the reminder of his enlistment?

    No limits. However, if your chain of command is on track normally they'll transfer their young combat experts to a unit that dont deploy, (ex. a CPL with 3 combat tours or a young SGT with 3 also) They do this to give them a break and give them a taste for life again. This is common among big "victor" units, but rare in smaller units where the man power is necessary. A young SGT i work with just got his break after 5! combat tours ... so again, it really just depends. On my way back for a third next year :) i cant wait.
