Marine Corps Gazette

Marine Corps Gazette is a professional journal for U.S. Marines founded in 1916 at Marine Corps Base Quantico for members of the United States Marine Corps. Begun by then Col John A. Lejeune as the vehicle to launch the Marine Corps Association (MCA), the journal is known as "The Professional Journal of U.S. Marines". Today the MCA continues to publish the Gazette alongside Leatherneck Magazine. The headquarters of the Gazette is in Quantico, Virginia.

The Gazette's mission is to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas that will advance knowledge, interest, and esprit in the Marine Corps. The Gazette also is a vehicle for the dissemination of military art and science among Marines. Readers contribute most of the articles. Readers are invited to debate important issues facing the Marine Corps through a combination of solicitation for articles and writing contests.
