But, I think if there were such forces, wouldn't they be more properly called the United Federation Marine Corps (UFMC)? Calling them the Starfleet Marines would be like calling the current day USMC the Navy Marine Corps.
I just think that the phrase 'Starfleet Marine Corps' sounds better, that's all. It may not be applicable in today's military but within the context of Starfleet, I think the phrase sounds better. And it would fit with Kirk's comment that Starfleet is a combined service.
Ear of the beholder, I suppose. Just doesn't scan for me. I agree to disagree with you.

As for uniforms, my supposition is that the SFMC of the TOS era wears a black-colored TOS uniform design. Don't you think that would look cool?
All-black gets to be a bit too SS to my eye. How about the brown/tan shirted folks we see in ST5? That struck me as a good uniform for ground troop type personnel.
