Located in Virginia, about four miles from the small town of Triangle, the Marine Corps Base Quantico is a major base for the training of U.S. Marines. It covers approximately 100 square miles, or 1,025 acres and is under the command of Colonel Daniel J. Choike. Portions of the base are in Prince William County, Stafford County, and Fauquier County and it has earned the nickname “Crossroads of the Marine Corps.” There are approximately 12,000 people on the base, including both military and civilians, and the base has a budget of roughly $300 million. Both the Corps Combat Development Command and the Marine Corps Officer Candidates School is located at this base, as is the Marine Corps Brig, a military prison. The FBI Academy is located here as is the training facility for the Drug Enforcement Administration. 

Due to the rich history of this base, there are several areas which make up the Quantico Marine Corps Base Historic District. The base procured its name because it lies so close to the Potomac River. The word comes from the Native American word for “by the large stream.” Before the area was a military base, it was a part of the Town of Quantico. In 1917, the Marine Barracks, Quantico was established. During World War I, thousands of men were trained before going to war. MCB Quantico is known as being the location where the Marines had their first Aircraft Wing and their first helicopter squadron. In the thirties, they also developed amphibious landing crafts and the Amphibious Warfare Doctrine here.
