Leatherneck Magazine

In 1917 a couple of enlisted Marines wanted a newspaper for themselves and their fellow Marines stationed at Quantico, Va. They wanted stories and features that chronicled their Corps and contained news of specific interest to Marines. With the assistance of the Army-Navy YMCA, the men, in their off-duty time, published their first newspaper on Nov. 17, 1917, and they called it The Quantico Leatherneck. In 1918 the word Quantico was dropped from the title. In 1925 Leatherneck's format was changed from that of a newspaper to a magazine. It remained a small circulation magazine in a small Corps. Prior to World War II, the Corps was smaller 17,000 and Leathernecks had a circulation of 13,000. published an overseas edition (without advertisements) for Marines island-hopping across the Pacific. Circulation peaked at 225,000. During WW II, Leatherneck worked to bolster the morale of the Marines fighting in the Pacific, shipping thousands of free issues overseas. Leatherneck was still staffed primarily by active-duty Marines until 1972 - See more at: http://www.mca-marines.org/leatherneck/leatherneck-legacy#sthash.WbYtzsMj.dpuf

In 1925 Leatherneck's format was changed from that of a newspaper to a magazine. It remained a small circulation magazine in a small Corps. Prior to World War II, the Corps was smaller than the New York City Police Department. As such, a circulation of 13,000 to 17,000 Marine readers during the Great Depression was exceptionally good. - See more at: http://www.mca-marines.org/leatherneck/leatherneck-legacy#sthash.WbYtzsMj.dpuf
