HAPPENING TODAY: In accordance with U.S. Naval Regulations, a 21-minute gun salute will be rendered by Battery G, 2nd Battalion, 10th Marine Regiment at noon May 29 in observance of Memorial Day, a day of remembrance for those who have died in service of the United States of America.

During this salute, the flag is flown at half mast, and the guns are discharged at one-minute intervals.

A brief ceremony will be conducted in front of John A. Lejeune Hall (Building 1) just prior to the 21-minute gun salute. Building 1 is located adjacent to the traffic circle at the intersection of Holcomb and McHugh Boulevards on Mainside.

The ceremony is open to all authorized personnel and their guests.

PUBLIC NOTICE: Beginning Monday, June 12, all Fitness Centers on Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and Marine Corps Air Station New River will be conducting 100% ID checks 100% of the time with the exception of those in uniform.

Due to the design of some of our fitness centers, patrons may be required to enter through one main entrance (Wallace Creek, for example will not allow entry from the door opposite the main entrance). If that is the case, signs will be posted on doors directing customers to use the designated entrance.

Authorized guests are still allowed to use the facility if they are accompanied by a DoD ID cardholder, however, these guests must have legal photo ID if they are 10 years of age or older. Drivers licenses and school IDs are acceptable forms of identification for guests.
