Examples of Marine Corps Institute course books stored at the Student Services Division, MCI, Marine Barracks Washington, D.C., June 5, 2015. The infamous red books of Marine Corps Institute that lined book shelves throughout the Marine Corps are no longer produced. After almost a century of service MCI is closing shop this September and ending another chapter of history at the “Oldest Post of the Corps”. The distance learning and education courses will be transferred to the familiar MarineNet platform. “With technology and times changing to computer based [platforms], it’s probably going to be easier for Marines to get their hands on [the courses],” said Master Sgt. Jason Bruce. - Examples of Marine Corps Institute course books stored at the Student Services Division, MCI, Marine Barracks Washington, D.C., June 5, 2015.
