SERVING: Past and present members of Headquarters Battalion(s) and the Marine Security Guard Battalion which was formerly "F" Co, Headquarters Battalion.
This page is dedicated to all those U.S.Marines who served, any time during their career , at Headquarters Battalion or the Marine Security Guard Battalion at Headquarters U.S. Marine Corps.
This site is intended to be a source of information for those of us still here and, as a memorial, to those who have already landed on Heaven's shores and are now guarding the "streets of gold."
All Marines are welcome and just because you never served at HQMC doesn't mean you may not have served with some of us. Many made the Corps a career serving 20-30 years or more

TALES OF YORE ARE URGENTLY NEEDED
Because our Association was initially formed from those Marines who served in the 1940s and 1950s, most of our tales deal with those early eras. However, we need tales from all Marines regardless of when they served. Perhaps some day we can publish them in book form for the edification and amusement of all Marines and friends of Marines.
If you have a tale that you would like to share with us that involves a period of service with a HqBn or MSG Bn please email it to Vaughn L. DeBoever firstname.lastname@example.org or snail mail it to him at 3309 Alta Vista Dr, Fallbrook, CA 92028-8740 for consideration for publication on this web site.
Where necessary, names should be changed to protect
not only the innocent but the guilty. Those submitting tales for posting
on our Web Site do so with the understanding that submissions will, if
deemed necessary, be edited and might be published at a later date to benefit
the HQMC Association and its membership.
For those seeking information about the Corps, how to locate
old friends, Veteran's benefits etc. We have pulled together what information
we have. Contributions for this page are always welcome so if you know
something we don't please let us know. Here is what we know. Useful
