Colonial Marine Base Locations

As part of my research in building an accurate Alien Universe Map I have transcribed the following section from the Colonial Marines Technical Manual.

DISPOSITION AND READINESS
Marine Space Force, Sol, is headquartered at O’Niell station, L-4 Earth-Lunar system. Its major units consist of the 1st Colonial Marine Division, 1st Marine Aerospace Wing and the 1st Marine Brigade, stationed in Camp Lejeune, NC; Camp Pendleton, CA; Kennedy ASFB, FL; O’Niell station; and Gateway station, Earth-GSO. The 2nd and 3rd Colonial Marine Brigades and portions of the 2nd Marine Aerospace Wing are based at Redlake Field ASFB and Glenn GSO Station, Aurore 510(Alpha Centauri A V); Ezell ASFB, Nene 246 (52 Tau Ceti II); Titleman Station, l-1 Lucien-Avril system(Lacaille 8760 IV). Support elements consisting of Force Troops, Sol, and the 2ns Colonial Support Group are located in North Carolina, Florida and Trobriands, Nene 246.

Marine Space Force, Eridani, is Headquartered at Happy Days, Helene 215 (82 Eridani II). It comprises the 3rd Colonial Marine Division and the 3rd Marine Aerospace Wing, based largely at Kuat ASFB, Surier 430 (Delta Pavonis), and at a number of garrison locations along the American arm as far as Thetis (20 Reticuli) and Solomons (Alpha Caeli V b-h).

Marine Space Force, Herculis, is headquartered at Chinook 91 GSO station, Georgia 525 (Ophiuchi A V). This front-line force, comprising of the 4th Colonial Marine Division, the 4th Colonial Marine Brigade, and the 4th Aerospace Wing is deployed at a number of UA recognized colonies through the Anglo-Japanese arm from the outer veil up to the fringes of the ISC Network, which extends approximately 35 parsecs along this arm. The largest support contingent includes the 1st Colonial Support Group at Tithonis Mountain, Bernice 378 (MU Herculis A III).

All Colonial Marine Units are kept in an advance state of readiness, ready to respond to all commitments in their theatre of operations. Marine Space Force, Sol, is capable of reinforcing either of the two MSFs and has earmarked the 1st and 2nd Colonial Marine Brigades as well as the 2nd Marine Aerospace Wing for rapid forward deployment The Colonial Marine reserves, comprising the 5th(provisional) Division and attached Reserve Aerospace Wing, are based mainly in the continental United States and Panama, Earth, though two reserve regiments can be raised on Aurore 510.
