The Marines were a small strike team of four sent to extract Peter McCain. They appear in the Zombies map Verrückt. The only notable character from the Marines is "Tank" Dempsey, who survived and became one of Edward Richtofen's test subjects. However, two other marines, John "Banana" and "Smokey", are mentioned in emails sent between "Vbush" and "Roppen" on the Black Ops Data Servers.
The team was sent to the asylum to extract OSS operative Peter McCain. They failed in their mission and, with the exception of "Tank" Dempsey and Paxton "Gunner" Ridge, were killed by the overwhelming hordes of zombies. Dempsey was later captured by Richtofen and became one of his test subjects, replacing Pablo Marinus after he was accidentally killed, while Paxton ended up joining the CIA.
They are the playable characters in the Call of Duty: World at War version of Verrückt, but were replaced by "Tank" Dempsey, Nikolai Belinski, Takeo Masaki and Edward Richtofen in the Call of Duty: Black Ops versions of the map.
