Camp Lejeune

TRAFFIC ADVISORY: Beginning Saturday, March 7, there will be a reduction in the speed limit from 45 mph to 35 mph along Holcomb Boulevard in the vicinity of the Holcomb Boulevard and Sneads Ferry Road intersection.

This reduction in speed is necessary in order to create a safe work environment for both contractors and motorists as contractors enter into the next phase of Wilson Boulevard construction. In the future, there will be several lane shifts and closures in this area as construction increases.

Appropriate signage and electronic message boards will be utilized to inform and direct traffic. Motorists are advised to exercise caution and reduce your speed as necessary in heavy construction traffic. Thank you for your patience while this work is completed.

TRAFFIC ADVISORY: Due to forecast mixed winter weather conditions overnight, there is a potential for ice accumulations, especially on elevated surfaces such as bridges and overpasses, for portions of the surrounding community along and north of U.S. Highway 70, including portions of Craven and Jones counties and the cities of Maysville, Pollocksville, Trenton and New Bern.

Motorists should be prepared for the potential for slippery roads and limited visibilities during the morning commute Friday, March 6.  All personnel are reminded that speed limits are for pavement that’s clear and dry, and drivers should allow for additional room between vehicles since slick winter road conditions often result in longer stopping distances.  In general, personnel should slow down for wet, snowy or icy conditions; when visibility is poor; or when conditions are changing or unpredictable especially on bridges, overpasses, off-ramps and shady spots.

While winter weather conditions are not currently forecast to impact the base directly, we realize that a portion of our military and civilian personnel live in areas that could potentially experience winter weather conditions.  If conditions deteriorate where you reside, please contact your chain of command or work supervisor for any individual changes in reporting instruction.

As a reminder, should a change to the current reporting schedule be required for MCIEAST-MCB Camp Lejeune personnel, we will publish a notice here on Facebook, record an update on the automated information system at (910) 451-1717, and communicate it to local news media outlets.

Military and civilian personnel of tenant commands who have questions regarding specific reporting circumstances should contact their chain of command or work supervisor for instruction.

Hospital Corpsman 2nd Class Stephen Brooks said the course of instruction was the most difficult part of the pipeline he endured. The beginning of the course, or Trauma One, was a scholastic intensive part of the pipeline where Brooks and his classmates learned the basics of trauma medicine. Dirt caked his uniform and exhaustion was written plain on his face but he stood erect, arms crossed in front of him with purpose.

"Trauma two was like getting shot out of a cannon," Brooks said. "We start with TPA, or trauma patient assessment, then go to CTM, or combat trauma management. And those two things are all hands on. Absolutely no books. No classroom. You're out back; you're working all day long."

Do you have what it takes to become a Special Amphibious Reconnaissance Corpsman (SARC)? U.S. Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command (MARSOC) is looking for a few "Battlefield Saint" corpsmen to join their team. Learn more at http://go.usa.gov/3x8WH.
