MCCS Spotlight

    UPDATE: 7 April 2020

    As part of the efforts to protect the health and welfare of the force, it is essential to support measures to reduce occupancy of various public spaces aboard Marine Corps Installations.  In furtherance of this goal, access to MCRDSD will be limited to permanent personnel (active duty, dependents, residents, and those entering for employment purposes only) until such time as health conditions permit wider use by visiting service members and the public.  We regret any inconvenience this may cause, and appreciate your support as we work to balance our critical military training mission with our obligations to ensure the safety of all who transit through this installation.

    Revised COVID-19 MCCS Reduced Hours of Operation, effective 7 April 2020

    Family Day and Graduation Update

    March 16, 2020 6:15 p.m.

    In accordance with the direction from the Commandant of the Marine Corps, the standard 10 day leave period granted to new Marines after graduation has been suspended to limit the new Marines exposure to COVID-19.  This order is to protect Marines, their families, Civilian Marines, and families from further exposure to COVID-19.  Following graduation at MCRD San Diego, all new Marines will immediately report to the School of Infantry at Camp Pendleton where they will begin the next phase of their training.  Upon completion of that training they will continue onto their next unit or additional formal schooling as required.  This suspension of leave will continue for the foreseeable future, and could be extended past May 11, 2020. Marines currently on leave will report to the School of Infantry on schedule.

    We must all understand the importance of protecting the force and, as a Marine Corps, continue to be the “most ready when the nation is the least ready.”

    Please be aware of the following:

    -  There are ZERO confirmed cases of COVID-19 at MCRD SD.
    - Graduation Events remain closed to the public.
    - Graduating Marines will go directly to School of Infantry without leave.
    - Graduation photos and video will be posted on this FB page at:

    Boot Camp Challenge CANCELLED

    Out of an abundance of caution for public safety, precautionary measures are being taken to ensure the health and well-being of all Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego (MCRDSD) personnel, recruit population, families and our communities. As a result, MCRDSD will be cancelling the 2020 Boot Camp Challenge.

    There are no known cases of COVID-19 here at MCRD San Diego, and we must remain cautious and focused on the public's safety while continuing to make Marines. We apologize for any inconvenience, but these measures have been put in place with everyone's best interests in mind. Thank you for your understanding.

    Refunds will be issued in the upcoming weeks to all Challengers who have already registered.
