MCRD San Diego Centennial
The year 2021 has been a year to celebrate the centennial of Marine Corps Recruit Depot (MCRD) San Diego. During a meeting in downtown San Diego, December 6th, 2021 was declared Marine Corps Recruit Depot Centennial Day in San Diego. Training recruits has been the principal activity for the base since World War II. While that is still the main priority of the base, within the last couple of years the depot has instituted changes to include training female recruits.
