YORKTOWN, VA. — A groundbreaking ceremony is set at Naval Weapons Station Yorktown for a new Marine Corps Security Force Regiment complex.
Officials say the ceremony is set for Wednesday.
The new $48.8 million complex includes a headquarters, barracks, transportation facility, warehouse and armory.
Naval Weapons Station Yorktown is currently home to Marine Corps Security Force Regiment headquarters staff and 2nd Fleet Anti-Terrorism Security Team Bravo Company.
