PANEL ONE—Partners in Diplomacy. The Marine Security Guard (MSG) program is a partnership between two great organizations: The U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Marine Corps. The U.S. Department of State conducts American foreign policy. The U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) is America’s global, expeditionary force-in-readiness. Together, they stand as a solid force for American diplomacy.

Safeguarding Americans in 141 Countries. For over six decades, U.S. Marine Security Guards have worked closely with the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Diplomatic Security (DS) to protect and safeguard American diplomacy. Their mission: to provide internal security services at designated U.S. diplomatic facilities; to prevent the compromise of classified U.S. Government information and equipment vital to the national security of the United States; and when necessary, to help protect U.S. citizens and U.S. Government property located at designated U.S. diplomatic facilities.
