The 12th Marine Corps District, informally referred to as “Force 12”, is comprised of eight regional Recruiting Stations and one Prior-Service Recruiting Station, located across the western U.S., to include Alaska and the Pacific Islands.  The Mission of “Force 12” is to locate, close-with, and contract/enlist/access/ship the highest quality men and women our Country has to offer, into the United States Marine Corps.  While this is our unifying purpose, the Marines, Sailors, and Civilian-Marines of Force 12 see their larger purpose as securing the future of the Marine Corps and changing lives!
