Mission Statement of Headquarters and Service Battalion

Provide support for the training, readiness, and sustainment
of the Marines assigned to eight major subordinate commands
aboard Marine Corps Base Quantico.

Command Philosophy

One Battalion, Our Collective Mission, Our Marines

1.  Mission: Our Battalion has a unique and honorable mission to man, serve and support several critical Marine organizations. These organizations and H&S Bn, including our missions, are inextricably linked. It is OUR obligation to work together and – above all else – accomplish the mission.

2.  Leadership: Every Marine deserves selfless and dedicated leaders committed to his or her moral, mental and physical development, discipline, training and family. I expect to see H&S Bn leaders routinely away from the HQ, and in the spaces where OUR Marines work. I wish to see battalion leaders assigned to supported organizations at battalion events, leading by example and cultivating relationships. Good leadership is required especially when not convenient.

3. Character: Character is the foundation upon which all else is built. Integrity is the bedrock of Marine character. We shall uphold high standards of honorable, disciplined and selfless service. We will keep faith with those Marines who went before us, our nation & our Core Values: Honor, Courage and Commitment.
