The mission of Marseilles Training Center (MTC) is to provide military organizations through battalion size with the absolute best environment for conducting individual and collective training. This 2,550 acre environment includes ranges, training and cantonment areas, as well as its operational and support elements.

MTC has a 1,240 person-housing complex, 6 live fire ranges, and over 30 other training areas, facilities, and simulations systems. Although MTC is primarily used for military training, a variety of agencies choose to train here. MTC is located in LaSalle County, Illinois. Seven of Illinois' eight metropolitan areas, representing over three-fourths of the state's population, are within 80 miles.

Additional specific information regarding MTC training assets can be found in the installation regulation NGIL Regulation 350-50-1.
