DATES: October 14-17, 2021
Goodbye COVID-19, hello Quantico!
Our reservation with the USMC staff at Quantico for our next Hotel 2/5 reunion for October 14 – 17, 2021 in Quantico, VA is still in limbo due to base closure because of COVID-19.
We chose to return to Quantico in 2021 because of previous financial deposits and detailed planning that took place in 2020 that could not be carried out due to the closure of the base for all of 2020 and much of 2021.
Remember that our Plaque Dedication ceremony in 2020 was cancelled but will be rescheduled during our reunion visit in 2021. If all goes well, the plans are to have our registration, meet and greet on Thursday, October 14th, a base tour on Friday the 15th, and the museum open to us on Saturday, October 16, 2021.
Please note: The USMC base at Quantico is still closed and not taking any reservations until sometime after July 2021 at the Crossroads
We will keep you posted on this website to upcoming events, dates, and reunion information as we move forward in our planning for 2021. Stay healthy and safe. Semper Fi!

Marine Corps Base Quantico (commonly abbreviated MCB Quantico) is a United States Marine Corps installation located near Triangle, Virginia, covering nearly 55,148 acres (86.169 sq mi) of southern Prince William County, Virginia, northern Stafford County, and southeastern Fauquier County. Used primarily for training purposes, MCB Quantico is known as the “Crossroads of the Marine Corps”.
In 2001, the base was designated as part of the Quantico Marine Corps Base Historic District by the National Register of Historic Places. This district includes 122 buildings, two landscapes, a sculpture, and a water tower located within the Main side area of the base.
The U.S. Marine Corps’ Combat Development Command, which develops strategies for U.S. Marine combat and makes up most of the community of over 12,000 military and civilian personnel (including families), is based here.
