Marine Corps Base Quantico

Since its inception in 1917, Marine Corps Base, Quantico has been the basis of Marine Corps innovation and training. Quantico is where Marine concepts, doctrine, training and equipment for the future originate. The techniques of amphibious warfare, a long-standing hallmark of the Corps, was conceived and perfected at Quantico along with the tactics of close-air support and vertical envelopment using helicopters.

 

Quantico is also home to the Marine Corps University, the Staff Non-Commissioned Officers Academy, the Marine Corps War College, School of Advanced Warfighting and Amphibious Warfighting School. All of these institutions are used in the training of officers of the U.S. Armed Forces and officers from foreign allies in the art of war.
