The National Museum of the Marine Corps is starting construction of a $50 million addition that will double the size of the attraction in Quantico, about 30 miles south of the nation’s capital.
First responders, explosive disposal specialists and hazardous material experts have closed the Marine Corps Base Quantico post office until further notice.
A Marine who shot two of his colleagues to death and then killed himself was a tactics instructor at a school that tests Marines who want to become officers, military officials said Saturday.
Officials say a Marine killed a male and female colleague before taking his own life in a double murder-suicide at Marine Base Quantico.
The former boss of a Marine Corps brig in Quantico, Va., testified Monday that she was shocked when the base commander asked for advance notice of any orders she planned to give regarding the confinement of Pfc. Bradley Manning, the soldier charged with sending classified information to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks.
Testimony in the WikiLeaks case has resumed with the second of two Marine Corps brig commanders who ordered strict pretrial confinement of an Army private charged with sending classified information to the anti-secrecy website.
A military judge on Thursday accepted the terms under which an Army private would plead guilty to seven charges for sending classified documents to Wikileaks.
