Yorktown VA Chosen as Site For Marine Corp Regiment

Naval Weapons Station Yorktown in Virginia. has been chosen as the new location for a consolidated unit of the Marine Corps Security Force Regiment.

The move will bring more than 800 Marines, sailors and civilians to Yorktown Naval Weapons Station as it seeks to consolidate anti-terrorism units.

The move will take place over several years, as construction permits. The first contingent of 150 Marines will move into temporary quarters at Yorktown-Cheatham Annex in June, the Marine Corps said.

The Naval Weapons Station was selected over two other sites in Chesapeake and Cherry Point, N.C.

The consolidation will combine Marines, sailors and civilians from Marines Corps Security Force Regiment headquarters at Naval Station Norfolk, and Alpha and Charlie Anti-terrorism Security Team Companies at Camp Allen in Norfolk.
The 800 will join 300 Marines in the Bravo, or 2nd, Fleet Anti-terrorism Security Team already located at Naval Weapons Station Yorktown.

The reason for the relocation is to “provide a consolidated security force training and operations complex within the mid-Atlantic region and improve mission training capabilities and operational readiness to meet current and future mission requirements,” Neal said.

There are about 300 Marines in the MCSFR at Yorktown presently and they will be joined by 100 members of the headquarter company this summer.

New construction in Yorktown in support of MCSFR will be competing with military construction funding in the 2013 fiscal year budget, then later phases of construction will extend through 2017.

“Between 1,100 and 1,200 personnel will be based at Yorktown by the time all the construction is finished,” Neal said.

Naval Weapons Station Yorktown is the Navy’s premier ordnance handling facility on the East Coast.
