MCINCR-MCB Quantico commands and controls assigned organizations and provides facilities and services to tenant commands, military and civilian personnel, and family members in order to promote and sustain training, readiness and facilitate Inter-Agency, Joint, and Service-level missions.
Uniform -- All military personnel reporting aboard should check-in wearing the service "Alpha" uniform, regardless of the uniform season.
Area Traffic -- Newcomers should be aware that I-95 is a very busy highway linking Florida and Maine, as well as the commuter link to Washington, DC from this area. One can expect all the characteristics of "rush hour" near any large city including delays, accidents, and construction. While there is mass transit available (i.e. train, bus, vanpool, carpool in HOV [High Occupancy Vehicle lanes]), traffic is extremely busy during peak hours. It generally takes up to an hour or more to commute between the Quantico area and the Pentagon or DC. Toll lanes can reduce travel time but tolls will be higher during peak travel hours.
Cost of Living -- Cost of off-base housing is relatively high in the Quantico area due to the close proximity of the base to Washington, D.C. Be sure to check-in with the Housing Office prior to negotiating any off base housing agreements. The Housing Office is located at 13201 Perkins Street. Lincoln Military Housing can be contacted at 703-432-8500 and The Family Housing Branch can be contacted at 703-784-2711.
Telephone Access -- When making phone calls aboard Quantico, please follow these guidelines: if you are calling a Quantico base number from a base number, you must dial either 784 or 432 and the last four numbers. Phone numbers that begin with 640 or 630 must first be preceded by the area code 703. The DSN prefix for Quantico is 278. Base Information: 703-784-2121 or 278-2121. Command Duty Officer: 703-784-6281.
Defense Service Network (DSN) Dialing Instructions
The DSN is the provider of long-distance communications service for the Department of Defense (DoD). Every installation has a special DSN number and the numbers vary by world-wide location. In order to place a call using DSN, the caller must be using a military phone on an installation. Cell phones cannot dial DSN numbers. When dialing a DSN number from a United States installation to another United States installation, it is unnecessary to dial the DSN 312 area code. When dialing a DSN number to/from overseas locations, the DSN area code must be included. The operator can be reached at commercial (703) 784-2121. Please note that long distance charges may be incurred.
