Ega Phone Cases

Description

The Eagle, Globe, and Anchor is the official emblem and insignia of the United States Marine Corps. It is commonly referred to as an EGA, although this usage is officially discouraged by the U.S. Marine Corps. The current emblem traces its roots in the designs and ornaments of the early Continental Marines as well as the United Kingdom's Royal Marines. The present emblem, adopted in 1955, differs from the emblem of 1868 only by a change in the eagle. Before that time many devices, ornaments, ribbons, and distinguishing marks followed one another as official badges of the corps.

Description

The long, hot summer of 2003 drew to a close for the Marine Corps forces remaining in Iraq. The brief offensive of March-April had become an un­ planned occupation and peacekeeping campaign. Lieutenant General James T. Conway’s I Marine Expeditionary Force (I MEF) staff had announced the transition to “Post-hostility Operations” on 15 April, and the redeployment to a new operating area to the south of Baghdad ensued. The scope of Operation Iraqi Freedom shifted into securi­ ty and stability operations, facilitating humanitar­ ian assistance and restoring civilian rule. Further­ more, the Marine Corps presence in Iraq loomed more temporary than ever with the identification of follow-on military contingents of the loose Co­ alition organized by the United States and United Nations that would take over these duties upon their arrival in Iraq.
