After World War II, despite the Marine Corps many achievements they were almost disbanded. Drawing on hastily assembled Congressional support, the National Security Act of 1947 was passed giving the Marine Corps permanent protection from demobilization. Despite this act, the Marines suffered from major post-war cutbacks and drawdowns in size.

When the Korean War began the Marine Corps had been slowly rebuilding their forces and continuing to improve their air techonologies. During the course of the Korean War, Marines played a large role as their air, ground and amphibious forces our flanked the enemy at the Battle of Inchon. When the People's Republic of China entered the war, Chinese troops surprised and outnumbered American forces. While the U.S. Eighth Army retreated, the 1st Marine Division, while attached to the Army's X Corps regrouped and inflicted heavy casualties during their fighting withdrawal to the coast. Now known as the Battle of Chosin Reservoir, this battle entered Marine lore as an example of the toughness and resolve of the United States Marine. During the Korean War the Marine Corps expanded from 75,000 to a force of 261,000. 4,267 Marines were killed and 23,744 wounded during the war and 42 Marines were awarded the Medal of Honor. In comparison, today there are 195,000 active duty Marines with around 40,000 in reserve forces. .
