Corps’ ‘oldest continuously published newspaper’enters 80th year, ready for more

Today marks the 80th birthday of the Quantico Sentry, the oldest continuously published newspaper in the Marine Corps. Although the first issue is, in all probability, lost to the ages, above is pictured a microfilm copy of the front page of the second issue, published June 7, 1935. The current editorial staff of Marines, civilians and contractors is proud to take our place in a long, unbroken line of service to the mission of the Marine Corps and Marine Corps Base Quantico. We look forward to our next 80 years of editorial excellence and vigilant duty. To see back issues of the Quantico Sentry, historical or those that will become historical, visit the library at the Gray Research Center at Marine Corps University.
