    The Marines are in the Department of the Navy......That means the Secretary of the Navy oversees both the Marines and the Navy.

    However, when it comes to the chain of command, the Marines are not under Navy control. The each have their own FOUR STAR General on the Joint Chiefs.

    This is a modern day misconception. The Marines are not part of the Navy. They are their own branch of service organized under the Department of the Navy and the Navy is its own branch organized under the Department of the Navy. Niether branch has control over the other. The secertary of the Navy has control of both and he is neither in the Navy nor is he a Marine. He is a civillian. Its would be like saying that the DEA is a department of the FBI since they both belong to the Department of Justice. This of course just isnt true. Or it would be like saying the Border patrol is part of the Coast Guard because they both belong to the Department of Homelan security. The only reason people think the Marines are part of the Navy is because the department they fall under happens to share the name of its sister branch.
