History

Camp Lejeune had its beginnings in the early 1940′s, when a selection board decided on the New River area of North Carolina as the most ideal location for a new Marine training base. The new facility met all the requirements for an east coast division training center, especially with its location near the two deep water ports of Morehead City and Wilmington. Construction for the new camp and for its aviation counterpart, nearby Cherry Point, began in 1941. In December 1942, the installation was named in honor of the 13th Commandant of the Marine Corps, Lieutenant General John A. Lejeune. Included on the installation are more than 450 miles of roads, 6,946 buildings and facilities to support a population of approximately 137,526 marines, sailors, retirees, their families, and civilian employees.

Mission

The mission of Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune is to support the various Marine Corps commands, a major Navy command and a Coast Guard command as well as the Marine Corps Base (MCB) itself. Camp Lejeune owns all the real estate, operates entry level and career level formal schools, and provides support and training for tenant commands. Camp Lejeune with its various satellite camps, housing, training areas and New River Air Station is the largest concentration of marines and sailors in the world. From the young man or woman reporting aboard for their first assignment to the seasoned veteran, and from the dense foliage of woodland cover to sandy beaches and ocean front training area, Camp Lejeune is truly the “Home of Expeditionary Forces in Readiness”.

Population

Camp Lejeune populates approximately 137,526 marines, sailors, retirees, their families, and civilian employees.

Base Transportation

Camp Lejeune provide three shuttle bus runs.

Critical Installation Information

Quality of life construction is ongoing both on Camp Lejeune and in the surrounding areas. Several housing areas are in the process of being replaced and nearly all are being improved. New construction in the entire county is also ongoing to provide housing for additional military personnel and their families. Due to the vast amount of construction, delays in travel in and around the county may be expected until completion.

Updated enlisted quarters are being erected base wide. Traffic flow improvements are in the planning stages but will require several years to complete.
