Joint Base Myer-HH

What was once known as the Fort Myer Military Community (now called Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall, JBM-HH, see below) grew out of the Military District of Washington (MDW) in 1993. The Joint Base serves the U.S. Military District of Washington (MDW), Fort McNair, D.C., for mission support, and the Installation Management Command (IMCOM) for fiscal, administrative and base operations purposes. JBM-HH, along with Fort Meade, Maryland, and Fort Belvoir, Virginia, is now a part of IMCOM’s National Capital Region - District (NCR-D), activated Oct. 1, 2008.

Headquarters Battalion, Henderson Hall, provides administrative, operational, logistical and quality of life services in support of over 2,000 Marines and civilians of Headquarters Marine Corps. Additionally, Henderson Hall serves to support all retired service members and family members who live in the National Capital Region.

The 2005 BRAC recommendations joined the two installations to form Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall (JBM-HH). JBM-HH is the first Army-led Joint Base reaching its full operating capability Oct. 1, 2009. JBM-HH serves as the base support of operations for the Joint Force Headquarters– National Capital Region- and U.S. Military District of Washington (JFHQ-NCR – MDW), Fort McNair, D.C. JBM-HH provides support for the execution of JFHQ-NCR’s missions of homeland defense, defense support to civil authorities and world-class ceremonial, musical and special-event missions. JBM-HH sits on 270 acres within Arlington County, Virginia.
