- Etymology submission (likely folk):
The Marines were used by ship's skippers as a police force. Marines were often taller than the sailors. When ordered to quell fights below decks, they often banged their heads on the beams. As often as they jarred their heads, while responding to trouble, they eventually became known as jarheads.
