Re: Starfleet Marine Corps

I really don't like the idea of either Starfleet Marines or an unified Federation Army, both seem too militaristic.

Technology has rendered large scale ground combats mostly irrelevant anyway, and for small assaults Starfleet has their security teams.

Member planets can possibly have their own ground forces for peacekeeping and to defend against an unlikely ground invasion, but these forces would be more like US National Guard. If there really was need Federation could form peacekeeper units out of volunteers from these planetary defence forces to be send to where needed.
