Installation Resources

Marine Corps Air Stations (MCAS) Beaufort and Marine Corps Recruit Depot (MCRD) Parris Island, located in the heart of the South Carolina Lowcountry, is home of the Marine Corps' Atlantic Coast fixed-wing, fighter-attack aircraft assets and one of the United States Marine Corps training facilities for enlisted Marines.
