A public-private venture partnership was formed in October 2003 to redevelop the housing inventory aboard Quantico. The homes on the base are now owned and professionally managed by Lincoln Military Housing. Once housing applications are processed by the Family Housing Office, homes are then offered and leased by the LMH staff. Leases are required with a minimum six-month commitment, and a 30-day written notice is required prior to the date quarters are vacated.
The LMH management staff is located atthe Family Center for a one-stop process for military families. For more information,call 703-432-8500, visit the website at www.lincolnmilitary.com or e-mail Quantico@lpsi.com.

All personnel who work or live aboard base who are registering motorcycles must provide their Motorcycle Safety Card to register their motorcycle. A motorcycle is considered any two- or three-wheeled, motorized vehicle over 50cc.
If you are attempting to register a vehicle on base that is not registered to you then you must provide a notarized letter stating that you are the authorized driver of the vehicle and that you are also shown on the insurance card for the vehicle. On the notarized letter you must provide an adequate description of the vehicle to include: year, make, model, and Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).
For Military personnel and DOD personnel it is a good reminder that when you receive a new ID card/CAC when they expire, it is time to update the base registration on your vehicle.
