All: Fire and Emergency Services have established a temporary exit road to allow personnel to slowly depart Camp Johnson, but inbound traffic remains closed as repairs are still underway. An update will be provided as soon as the Camp Johnson gate resumes normal operations and after all repairs have been completed. Thank you for your patience.

FROM CENTURYLINK: "We are continuing to troubleshoot the solution, but it will take several more hours to implement. We have an executive focus on it and are expecting several more hours before we have resolved the problem affecting the Jacksonville area."

As stated earlier, the greater Camp Lejeune, New River Air Station and Jacksonville areas are currently experiencing an area-wide telephone outage due to a reported CenturyLink system failure. This situation is impacting public sector calls coming in and out of the base via land lines, not over cell towers, and does not impact internal calls on government telephones.

For more information, please contact CenturyLink at www.centurylink.com/Pages/Support.

Ooh-rah, Sir!

Just now, President Barack Obama nominated Commandant of the Marine Corps Gen. Joseph F. Dunford Jr., as the next Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He would be only the second Marine to ever serve in the position.

"Gen. Dunford is the very definition of 'Boston Strong'... I know Joe. I trust him."

— President Barack Obama
