The Quantico Area Chapter (QAC) of the U.S. Naval Academy Alumni Association perpetuates friendships and associations formed by Chapter members through their common experiences and interests in the Naval Academy and the Naval Services. QAC promotes fraternity among Naval Academy alumni and fosters interests of our country, the Naval Services, and the Naval Academy.  Activities are focused on bonding members of all classes and all generations in a common tradition of service, citizenship, fellowship, and mutual support.


Greetings Quantico Alumni Chapter of Northern Virginia and Happy Thanksgiving!
