I can't find the source after all these years, but as reported in the local paper at the time, MCRD San Diego exists because USMC maintains separate facilities for readiness purposes. If an east coast storm causes evacuations/halts in normal activity at MCRD PI, the west coast can pick up the slack.

If that's the case, wouldn't the same apply to MARSOC?
Or am I comparing apples to oranges?

Not sure what else was in the works during the MCRD San Diego decision. MCRD and NTC next door were made into historic sites so the buildings couldn't be razed. The airport wanted/wants that land badly.
