The Marine Corps will be relocating two Fleet Anti-terrorism Team (FAST) companies and its regimental headquarters from Camp Allen, Norfolk, to the Naval Weapons Station Yorktown, according to a release from Rep. Rob Wittman (R-Montross).

The move will result in the consolidation of the Marine Corps Security Forces Regiment (MCSFR) units at Naval Weapons Station Yorktown. Currently, only 2nd FAST Company is based out of Naval Weapons Station Yorktown. These companies provide anti-terrorism/force protection platoons to the fleet and combatant commanders around the world to protect vital U.S. Navy assets.
