WELCOME TO MARINE CORPS BASE QUANTICO
CROSSROADS OF THE MARINE CORPS
Since its establishment in 1917, Quantico has been home to many of the nation’s most innovative, intelligent and patriotic men and women. It is here, at the Crossroads of the Marine Corps, that vital concepts, training and equipment for current and future warfighting capabilities are developed. Some of the most important techniques in warfighting were born here, including amphibious doctrine and expeditionary warfare, for which the Marine Corps is renowned. History has proven the importance of Quantico to America’s defense.
The sharp vision and intense dedication of the service members, civilians and family members who serve here continue to ensure the Marine Corps remains the world’s premier fighting force.
