As a resident of Jacksonville NC for the last 19 years and the wife of a career United States Marine, I am a Proud American that is glad that I live in the United States of America.  Jacksonville NC is the home of Camp Lejeune Marine Corps Base and New River Marine Corps Air Station, to say that we are a Proud American community is an under statement.  We are home to the Beirut Memorial, a Vietnam Veterans Memorial (they just held there opening ceremony June 15th), we are the future home of  The Museum of the Marine.  While the area has long been thought of as "not the greatest duty assignment" it's come a long way to be an area that is good for raising our families.   Jacksonville NC  has become home to many retired Military as well.

The 4th of July is much more then a long weekend.  It's a wonderful time to express our Patriotism.  It's a time to remember all the people that have fought for our freedom, to be greatful for the sacrifices that have been made so that we can have all that we have.  It's a time to enjoy being with your family and friends.  There are family activities all around Onslow County and lots of fireworks displays.  Camp Lejeune always puts on quite a show, there is a day full of activities for all the military in the area.
