Prior to 1953 there was no formal infantry training in the Marine Corps and all Marines received combat training at the recruit training depots. The Marine Corps established Infantry Training Regiments at Camp Lejeune, N.C. and Camp Pendleton, CA. Between 1965 & 1971, Marines assigned a non-infantry Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) were receiving only two weeks of Infantry Combat Training (ICT) while their infantry counterparts were getting four to six weeks. In 1971, ICT for non-infantry Marines was being included as part of their recruit training and entailing only 60 training hours. This lasted until the Marine Corps established a course lasting 28 days, Marine Combat Training (MCT), in 1988 to teach rifleman skills to all male Marines. In 1996, the 2nd Marine Division disbanded Division Schools, passing the role of advanced infantry training to the newly established Advanced Infantry Training Company at the School of Infantry (SOI). Women Marines (WMs) began attending MCT in 1997. The Training and Education Command (TECOM) was established at Camp Geiger in 2000, and in 2003 the Marine Corps created the MOS 8513 for Marine Combat Instructors.

Camp Geiger is named in honor of General Roy Geiger, who was a Marine aviator and commander of the I Amphibious Corps, the III Amphibious Corps, and the 10th Army during World War II."Camp Geiger",]


The mission of the School of Infantry East is to train infantry and non-infantry entry-level Marines in common combat skills. Marine Combat Instructors form the bedrock of success and ensure the conduct of realistic, aggressive, and safe training.


At Camp Geiger, entry-level Marines are transformed into basic warriors; and Marine leaders, from the rank of corporal to Lieutenant, are able to attend numerous courses that help to fine tune their already established skills. The School of Infantry’s training mission ensures that the Marines Corps’ policy, "Every Marine is, first and foremost, a Rifleman", becomes reality.

This mission is accomplished with a combination of classroom instruction, hands-on practical application, and live-fire evolutions. The Marine Combat Instructors at SOI provide continuity and consistency in the continuum of training and mentoring entry-level Marines. SOI requires that only the best and most professional leaders in the Marine Corps accomplish this mission.

Graduates are prepared mentally, physically, and morally for the challenges of 21st Century warfare.
