MILITARY PERSONNEL NOTICE: The observed annual hot weather season is under way aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. To assist commands with preventing excessive heat stress, which degrades mental and physical performance capabilities potentially leading to heat casualties, Base Operations maintains the Automated Heat Stress System (AHSS). The system provides leaders with real-time heat stress flag conditions for many of the base training areas. Leaders must assess the unit's missions and training requirements against the risk associated with operating in warm weather conditions. Early recognition and treatment of Marines presenting symptoms of heat injuries is key to saving lives. To access AHSS, please visit either http://go.usa.gov/x375e (NIPRNET Access) OR http://go.usa.gov/x375Y (Public Access).

Camp Lejeune’s Fourth of July Celebration Public Access Security Changes


CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. –Camp Lejeune’s Fourth of July Celebration and Fireworks event is scheduled for Monday, July 4 and will commemorate both America turning 240 and Camp Lejeune’s 75th Anniversary.

The main gate will open to the general public at 3 p.m. and event gates open at 4 p.m. So bring your lawn chairs and head out to W.P.T. Hill Field on Camp Lejeune for an evening of fun, fireworks and entertainment, including musical performances by the 2nd Marine Division Rock Band and national recording artist and North Carolina native Kellie Pickler.

Admission to the celebration is free. No pets will be allowed on the field. Due to the expected large crowds, we encourage people to car pool and arrive early as traffic congestion and delays are anticipated.

Due to the current global security environment and for your protection, a more stringent security screening process will be in place for all event attendees this year.

All guests without a DoD identification card are required to enter through the Main Gate on Lejeune Boulevard (NC-24), and the driver should have their driver’s license, vehicle registration and proof of insurance ready to present to the gate sentry upon arrival. Additionally, all passengers should have their state-issued identification cards ready to present to the gate sentry as well.

Guests without a DoD identification card will not be granted access to the base through any other gate for this event, unless they are in a vehicle with, and sponsored by, a guest with a DoD identification card.

As a reminder, the following items are not allowed in your vehicle, and guests possessing these items will be denied access to the base.

- No weapons (to include concealed handgun permit holders)
- No personal fireworks, explosives or pyrotechnics
- No open containers of alcohol
- No illegal or illicit drugs or drug paraphernalia

For your protection, security checkpoints will be at the entrance to the field and bags (to include backpacks, purses and coolers) will be searched. The following items are not allowed into the event site, and guests possessing these items will have these items confiscated and may be escorted off of the base.

- No personal fireworks or sparklers
- No outside alcohol
- No personal grills
- No weapons (to include knives)
- No glass containers
- No pets will be allowed on the field

After the event has concluded, all guests parked in the designated event parking areas will be directed to exit the base through the Main Gate. To keep traffic flowing, DoD identification card holders and base residents parked in the designated event parking areas will be required to completely exit the base and will have to reenter the base via any open gates to access the housing areas.
