Twentynine Palms Marine Corps Air Ground Combat CenterTwentynine Palms, California
United States Marine Corps
The Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center (MCAGCC), also known as 29 Palms or the Stumps, is located adjacent to the city of Twentynine Palms in southern San Bernardino County, California. The base is home to the largest military training area in the nation and the largest US base in the world. Twentynine Palms has a reputation within the Marine Corps for its relative desolation and isolation, due to the harsh desert climate and the remote nature of the base. Geocon has performed geotechnical and environmental services for a 38-acre residential development, Enlisted Dining Facility and for the Support Integration Facility. We also performed a geotechnical investigation for the proposed solar photovoltaic fields southeast of the existing retention basins.
