You are thinking of the United States Marines. Which differes from classical definitions of marines. Since the USMC is its own organization seperate from the navy it's not the same thing.
Actually im thinking about their ancestor (the Royal marines)
I was talking about the definition of what a marine is, disambiguated from any current or past orginizations to bear the title.
and the answer there is
"half a soldier half a sailor"
