Located in the northern Virginia hills just south of our nation's capital, Marine Corps Base Quantico is known throughout the world as the Crossroads of the United States Marine Corps.

The impact of famous Marines, including Generals John A. Lejeune and Smedley D. Butler, is explored, as is the unique relationship between the base and the Town of Quantico, the only United States city surrounded by a military base.
