More about this marker. This marker was originally located at 38 30′ 48.32″ N, 77 18′ 43.01″ W, a site across Kelton Avenue from the base headquarters. It was removed from that location on 13 November 2007 and relocated to the Marine Corps Memorial Gardens, a site near the National Museum of the Marine Corps. Most pictures here on this page were taken at its original location. This correspondent was fortunate to be passing the original site during preparation for moving and contributed to the effort.

Additional comments.
1. Dedication Quote
In Vietnam, we went where the fighting took place, and entered the fray, and tried to keep each other alive. Thirty and more years later, we try to help each other make sense of life, and we support our brothers out of an allegiance and loyalty that can only be forged in fire.
- Rusty Sachs, Quantico Dedication, July 8, 2000
