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.
