New official insignia for base traces back to early roots

To honor Quantico’s historic past and separate itself from Marine Corp Combat Development Command, the base commander, Col. Dan Choike, approved a new insignia to represent the base. The new insignia combines the bronzed eagle, globe and anchor emblem as it existed in 1917, along with the traditional scarlet and gold colors of the Corps. In text there is the familiar motto of Quantico: “The Crossroads of the Marine Corps”
