NOISE ADVISORY: Expeditionary Warfare Training Group Atlantic (EWTGLANT) is scheduled to conduct training involving fixed wing aviation, artillery and mortars after the normal midnight curfew until 3 a.m., June 23 through 26; and 2:30 a.m., August 12 through 15.

EWTGLANT intends to fire 155mm artillery, 60 and 81mm mortars, release inert training bombs, and shoot 20 and 25mm guns from low flying jet aircraft into the G-10 range impact area to meet training requirements.

Joint Terminal Attack Controllers are required to complete a minimum of two night controls prior to certification. Sufficient night time does not exist during spring and summer months to execute required night controls. Every effort to mitigate noise and complete training prior to midnight will be made.

The community's patience and understanding is appreciated as the base strives to provide the best possible training experience for our Nation's Marines and sailors.

PUBLIC NOTICE: Beginning this week, the Jacksonville Police Department will begin aggressively issuing citations to motorists who block intersections during the busy commuter periods along Lejeune Boulevard.  There has been an increase in motorists blocking the intersection of Lejeune Boulevard and Western Boulevard with the recent closure of the Tarawa Terrace I gate.  Motorists should not enter an intersection until the traffic is clear and should not enter an intersection they cannot clear.  As a reminder, the Wilson Boulevard gate is now open until 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, and motorists may access the Tarawa Terrace housing areas through the Wilson Boulevard gate via Bougainville Drive.

"Our Commandant would like for this information and mitigation measures to be shared with all personnel down to the lowest level possible throughout your commands and organizations."
— Lt. Gen. Jim Laster, Director, Marine Corps Staff

Read more from Lt. Gen. Laster for what you should know about the recent data breach that may have exposed the personal information of approximately 4 million current and former federal personnel at http://go.usa.gov/3RCK5.
By now I'm sure you've heard last night's announcement from the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) regarding the cybersecurity incident affecting its systems and data that may have exposed the personal information of both current and former Federal,

TRAFFIC ADVISORY: There are scheduled lane closures along a portion of Bougainville Drive and Wilson Boulevard Friday, June 5 from 9 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. and Saturday, June 6 from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m.

The contractor will begin work on the portion of Bougainville Drive between Wilson Boulevard and Tarawa Boulevard Friday, and if time permits, the contractor will move personnel and equipment to the inbound portion of Wilson Boulevard between Bougainville Drive and the Northeast Creek Bridge Friday afternoon completing the remaining work on that stretch of road Saturday.

During both of these closures, there will be approved NCDOT signage set up to inform motorists of the closures and lane shifts, and flagmen will be utilized for the lane closure along Bougainville Drive. These closures are both necessary in order to make repairs caused by erosion and redesign to mitigate future problems at these locations.

FROM THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE: The National Weather Service office in Morehead City / Newport has issued a HEAT ADVISORY for today from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. for the entire base community. A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is expected. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will combine to create a situation in which heat illnesses are possible. Heat index values up to 107 degrees are possible today. For the full advisory and safety tips, please visit http://go.usa.gov/3EZxe.

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/TmvB (NIPRNET Access) OR http://go.usa.gov/TmvQ (Public Access).

PUBLIC NOTICE - DOD DECALS STILL REQUIRED: With Department of Defense installations still under Force Protection Condition BRAVO for the foreseeable future, the Base Provost Marshal's Office routinely implements Random Antiterrorism Measures (RAMs) to ensure the safety and security of all personnel.

RAMs can be conducted at the gate or internally to the base. One RAM that is frequently used might be to randomly check the ID cards of all occupants in a vehicle to ensure everyone has been properly screened and possesses a DoD ID card.

Last week, one of those measures required gate sentries to ensure DoD decals were displayed on vehicles of all personnel stationed or working aboard the base. During that process, it became evident there were inconsistencies in people's understanding of the decal policy, which remains unchanged.

As a reminder, while access onto the Base currently requires a valid Common Access Card, military dependents identification card, military retiree identification card, DOD civilian retiree identification card, or contractor identification card, Camp Lejeune and MCAS New River still requires all permanent personnel to register their vehicles within 30 days of purchase, permanent change of station (PCS), or permanent change of assignment (PCA), to include all branches of service and other DoD components stationed aboard the base. A vehicle decal is issued to all permanent personnel and their dependents as a sign of completing this registration requirement. A temporary pass is issued to all non-permanent personnel requiring access to the base after registering their vehicle, and it must be prominently displayed at all times.

Decals and passes can be obtained at the Camp Lejeune Visitor's Center located at the Main Gate Monday through Friday: 5 a.m. - 9 p.m. Saturday and Sunday: 7 a.m. - 7 p.m. [Phone: (910) 451-7735/3478] or at the Marine Corps Air Station New River Main Gate Visitor's Center weekdays 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. [Phone: (910) 449-5513]

For more information on vehicle registration requirements, please visit http://go.usa.gov/KcJj. [Ref: Base Order 5560.2 and MARADMIN 325/11.]

Security by nature is inconvenient. Security and Emergency Services officials are asking the public to be patient and courteous to the Marine sentries at the gates. They are working to keep everyone aboard the base safe.

TRAFFIC ADVISORY: In the coming weeks, construction of the overpass at the intersection of Holcomb Boulevard and Sneads Ferry Road will require the closure of the inbound left turn lane from Holcomb Boulevard onto Sneads Ferry Road. This turn lane will remain closed until construction of the overpass is completed.

Outbound traffic from Sneads Ferry Road will still be able to make a right turn onto Holcomb Boulevard toward the Main gate. For access to Sneads Ferry Road, inbound motorists on Holcomb Boulevard will be detoured to Birch Street and must drive to Louis Road.

As a reminder to all motorists, the new speed limit for Holcomb Boulevard in the vicinity of the Sneads Ferry Road intersection is 35 mph and is strictly enforced. Motorists are advised to plan their routes accordingly and should expect potential traffic delays, especially during peak travel times.
