    Exclamation Quantico, and Portsmouth VA Brigs.

    Can anyone tell me if the Quantico and Portsmouths brigs in Virginia are still open and functional? Does the Navy still have Red Lind Brigs:tusk: run by USMC or have they all gone the way of the wooden ships?:shrug: Thanks.

    I work at NCBM in San Diego, but I can tell you for a fact Quantico is still in operation.

    Red Lind? I don't know what that means - are you talking about CCU (Correctional Custody Unit)?

    Red face Re: Quantico, and Portsmouth VA Brigs.

    Me key board no can speel CO. :stone:LOL Sorry. I meant red line brig. Not Red Lind. Red line brigs had the red line down the middle of the passageway and a yellow line on either side. Prisoners were only able to travel in the passageways on the red line. To step off was an attempted escape and you went up side their head. To pass another prisoner they had to meet, take one step to the right, onto to the yellow line, forward two steps then one step to the left back onto the red line. The way it should be in all prisons. In todays PC world though I'm sure they have gone the way of discipline and honor in the eyes of the public. Hope this cleared up my attempt at communication.

    The last redline brig there was, was in Camp Lejune NC. That went away in 1997.

    I know that CCU is still operational and it is mainly run by the marine corps. When I was an instructor at CCU we had a waiting list from the Navy even though the Navy had their own CCU. It was run completly different and the Navy did not run theirs as a boot camp where the Marines did. We had about a 85% of our people that came through us stay in the Military and never screw up again where the Navy's was at about 20%.

    CCU for Navy and Marine. What can you tell me about the CCU's. They didn't call them that when I was in. What are they like? The only brigs I ever served was Portsmouth, Norfolk Quantico VA and Rota Spain. At the Norfolk and Portsmouth we had lifers for murder and rape along with B&W's (Bread and Water) :thumbs: which were 3 day stays. I've been out for (censored) ;) years and have no real understanding of how things are set-up now days.

    The Brig in Portsmouth down years ago, but the Norfolk Brig is still open.
