I'm afraid that this one is not a hoax. While I have the utmost respect for our buddies, the devil dogs... I'm not ready to break with the tradition and history of the finest military force on the planet.
A North Carolina congressman has introduced a bill to add the Marine Corps’ name to the Department of Navy.
Republican Walter B. Jones has asked Congress since 2001 to change the department’s name to the “Department of Navy and Marine Corps,” thus giving the Corps “the recognition it deserves as one of the official branches of the military,” according a release from Jones’ office in Washington.

On a side note, I really wonder if this is what our government should be working on right now. Perhaps it's time to call your local congressional representative and let them know whether or not this is important.
