MCB Quantico

There were eight military installations housing Afghan evacuees during the fall of 2021 and into the winter of 2022. Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia was one of them. Task Force Quantico began operations in support of Afghan evacuees in late August 2021. The TF provided support for the relocation and resettlement effort of the Afghans evacuated from Afghanistan during the Kabul airport non-combatant evacuation operation (NEO). This support included transportation, housing, security, medical care, and sustainment.

Operations began on August 24th when a 14-man team conducted a site survey of the location for the housing of the Afghan evacuees. TF Quantico was established on August 27th and by August 29th the first Afghan evacuees arrived. MCB Quantico would house and support almost 4,000 Afghan evacuees. The last Afghans left MCB Quantico on December 22nd.
