The Histories Branch records the official institutional and operational history of the Marine Corps. It prepares a wide variety of publications, ranging from pamphlets, monographs, and occasional papers to case-bound histories, for distribution within the Marine Corps, the Department of Defense, other Federal agencies, and to the general public. Publications produced by the branch are written works that provide an account of the planning, operational, logistical, developmental, and/or administrative activities of a specific unit, event, or period in Marine Corps history. The branch is also responsible for several programs including the Oral History program, the Base, Regimental, and Squadron Histories Program, and participates in the Marine Corps Grants, Fellowships, and Intern Programs.
