Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall

Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall

About

Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall (JBMHH) is comprised of three main installations that were combined during the last round of BRAC (Base Realignment and Closure): Fort Myer (Army), Henderson Hall (Marines), and Fort McNair (Army). These installations are tasked with housing headquarter units for both the Army and the Marines. The U.S. Army Military District of Washington (MDW) is the major command, and major units within JBMHH include the 3rd Infantry (The Old Guard), HHC U.S. Army Garrison, HHC U.S. Army, The U.S. Army Band, 3rd Military Intelligence, CID/Washington District, National Defense University, White House Communications Agency, and the National Guard Bureau. Headquarters Battalion Marine Corps National Capital Region is located at Henderson Hall.

Fort Myer is most well known for its role in the highly honored duties of managing Arlington National Cemetery. The 3rd Infantry Division, the Army’s oldest infantry unit, was reactivated in 1948 and tasked with security of the greater Washington metro area as well as taking on the role as the Army’s official ceremonial unit and escort to the president. The Old Guard participates in over 6,000 ceremonies a year at locations like the White House, the Pentagon, and other national memorials in the capital region — that’s roughly 16 per day! They also hold the honor of keeping continuous vigil over the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery.

Fort Leslie J. McNair (commonly referred to as Fort McNair) is located in Washington D.C. and has been an Army post for over 200 years, making it the third oldest in U.S. history! It has been the site of many iterations of military education and leadership training, and today is best known as the home of the National Defense University.

Many active military and retirees in the area access Fort Myer to use the medical clinic or to shop at the large commissary or popular Base Exchange, but housing at JBMHH is extremely limited. At Fort Myer and Henderson Hall housing is basically limited to a few barracks for single soldiers and historic housing reserved for extremely high ranking officers (like Quarters One, home to the Chief of Staff of the Army). JBMHH supports personnel assigned to Fort Myer, Fort McNair, Henderson Hall, and the Pentagon, but you will be referred to Fort Belvoir, Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling or Joint Base Andrews if you choose to live on post. Marines are authorized to apply for housing at Anacostia Naval Station.
