Road Trip: Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia

Marine Corps Base Quantico is located near Triangle, Virginia. Known as the "Crossroads of the Marine Corps", it is a major Marine Corps training base, covering nearly 100 square miles. The Corps's Combat Development Command is based here, which develops strategies for Marine combat, and makes up most of the community of over 12,000 military and civilian personnel, including families.

Spaniards visited Quantico 40 years before Jamestown was settled and Captain John Smith explored the Potomac banks in 1608. Tobacco was the main product of early Scottish settlers in the Quantico area, which was the home of many Revolutionary War heroes.

 American, British and French armies used nearby roads to move from one battlefield to another. During the Civil War, Confederates used the Potomac's banks as gun positions to halt Union traffic on the river. By the 1880s the land had been acquired by speculators, who sold it to the Corps in 1917.

 

Since its inception in 1917, Marine Corps Base, Quantico, has been the "frontline of innovation." Marine concepts, doctrine, training, and equipment of the future are initiated aboard the Base. The techniques of amphibious warfare, for which the Corps is renowned, were conceived and perfected here.

Quantico also serves as the focal point for professional military education. The Marine Corps University provides the academic platform the Corps uses to shape and hone leaders at every milestone of their professional lives.

Officers in the Marine Corps begin their careers at the Officer Candidates School and The Basic School. Enlisted marines receive additional leadership training at the University's Staff Non-Commissioned Officers Academy.

The National Museum of the Marine Corps is the historical museum of the United States Marine Corps. Designed by Fentress Architects, the exterior design is meant to "evoke the image of the flag raisers of Iwo Jima," an image that is also preserved by the USMC War Memorial. The 100,000 square foot museum is a tribute to the U.S. Marines who have served their country since 1775.

 

The National Museum of the Marine Corps preserves and exhibits the material history of the U.S. Marine Corps; honors the commitment, accomplishments, and sacrifices of Marines; supports recruitment, training, education, and retention of Marines; and provides the public with a readily accessible platform for the exploration of Marine Corps history.

The National Museum of the Marine Corps is the centerpiece of a complex of facilities called the Marine Corps Heritage Center. This multi-use, 135-acre campus includes the Semper Fidelis Memorial Park and Chapel; a demonstration area with parade grounds; hiking trails and other outdoor recreational offerings; a conference center and hotel; and an archive facility to restore and preserve Marine artifacts.

Giving Thanks

February 26, 2013

A tragedy left a family with a void that nothing could fill. A toddler chasing a cat wandered into the road and was run over by a delivery truck. A 4-year-old watched in shocked silence as her parents cradled the lifeless body of her little sister. For years, the cold emptiness of that moment encased the family in sadness. Feelings were frozen. The only comfort was numbness. Relief was unimaginable.

Author Ann Voskamp was the 4-year-old, and the sorrow surrounding her sister’s death formed her view of life and God. The world she grew up in had little concept of grace. Joy was an idea that had no basis in reality.

As a young mother, Voskamp set out to discover the elusive thing the Bible calls joy. The words for joy and grace come from the Greek word chairo, which she found out is at the center of the Greek word for thanksgiving. Could it be that simple? she wondered. To test her discovery, Voskamp decided to give thanks for 1,000 gifts she already had. She started slowly but soon gratefulness was flowing freely.

Just as Jesus gave thanks before, not after, raising Lazarus from the dead (John 11:41), Voskamp discovered that giving thanks brought to life feelings of joy that had died along with her sister. Joy comes from thanksgiving.

Lord, I thank You that You have the power
to raise the dead. May the feelings of joy
that arise from our thanksgiving be seeds of
grace to those who are afraid to feel.
The joy of living comes from a heart of thanksgiving.

Read: John 11:32-44

Jesus lifted up His eyes and said, “Father, I thank You that You have heard Me.” —John 11:41
Bible in a Year:
Numbers 15-16; Mark 6:1-29

Thanks very much, Kathy!

***HUGS***



And thanks very much to you and Lauren for tonight’s Road Trip to Marine Corps Base, Quantico, Virginia! I was stationed there from June 1968 until February 1969, where I was Senior Corpsman on the Surgical Ward at USNH Quantico. I had a memorable tour there - met some outstanding Marines, both on my ward and on the base.

I was an early denizen of the Globe & Laurel Restaurant, established in 1968 by Maj. Rick Spooner, USMC. It's now a world-famous establishment. No longer located in Q-Town, it's now just outside the South Gate to the Base. I spent many a pleasant evening there with my colleagues. We often closed the place down and staggered back to our barracks - about a mile away.

Coming aboard as we speak. Rendering Hand Salutes to our National Colors and to the Officer of the Deck!

My day went pretty well, thanks! The drive is a little easier - it's only a few blocks from where I was working before, but it's easier to get to. The accommodations are okay and the staff seems to be easy to get along with.

Good evening, Luv...sadly no moon here. It is completely overcast, with possible snow.

Are you having the nasty weather like lauren is having?

We have a clear sky and a beautiful moon now, but our bad weather started late last night and we had 60mph winds and spitting snow this morning...till about 12pm. Then we had spitting sand. LOL! Lots of accidents on the interstate involving 18-wheelers who were being blown over in the crosswinds.

It’s moved on to hers, mylife’s and NYT’s part of the state. I hope they don’t get too much damage!
