Per MARADMIN 667/13, the Marine Corps is administering the FY15 Enlisted Retention Survey to enlisted Marines with less than 15 years of service and an EAS between Oct. 1, 2014, to Sept. 1, 2015. The purpose of this survey is to give Marines the opportunity to communicate to senior leaders what factors and incentives have the greatest influence on their decision to either remain in the Corps or to leave active service. This survey also affords Marines the opportunity to express how satisfied or dissatisfied they are with certain aspects of the Marine Corps and the military way of life.

The survey was scheduled to end Feb. 28, but to obtain a better response rate, the survey has been extended for two weeks to March 14. Eligible Marines please go to to provide your valuable feedback. 

If you have any questions, please contact the Integration & Analysis Section (HQMC MPP-50) at commercial phone number (703) 784-9367, or at email address

Munitions Response Program

As the Crossroads of the Marine Corps, Marine Corps Base, Quantico has a rich and important military history training our Marine warfighters since World War I. Prior to that, it also played a part in Civil War history as it was the site of several Confederate encampments. Civil War-era military munitions can still be found aboard MCB Quantico as well as throughout this geographic area.

From World War I through World War II, much of the small arms and artillery training was conducted on the Main side of the Base, which is located east of I-95. During World War II, additional real estate was acquired west of I-95 and munitions training was moved to the West side (Guadalcanal area) during a major expansion of the Base.

Over time, the Main side of MCB Quantico became developed on sites that were former ranges, leaving behind reminders of what these areas once were. Many, if not most, of our nation’s military installations have a similar history. The Military Munitions Response Program was initiated to address these concerns at all DoD installations. [more]

Unscheduled leave is authorized. Emergency and essential personnel are expected to report to work. Personnel should contact their chain of command for specific command/activity guidance or direction.

Code Blue, XXXX:  This base operating status is typically used when the impact of the winter weather event is more significant and time is needed to conduct clearing operations before the base can support near-normal operations. When the base operating status is code blue, XXXX, the base is open at a specific time (XXXX). Reasonable delays for reporting to work are excused. Unscheduled leave is authorized. Emergency and essential personnel are expected to report to work. Personnel should contact their chain of command for specific command/activity guidance or direction.

Code Red: This base operating status is typically used when the impact of the winter weather is severe and it will take significant effort to restore the base to near-normal operations. When the base operating status is code red, conditions are severe and the base is closed for normal operation. Only emergency and essential personnel are expected to report to work. Personnel should contact their chain of command for specific command/activity guidance or direction.
