Editor's note: We've seen some concerned tweets about an active shooter at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina. We've checked and the base is conducting a scheduled 'active shooter mass notification drill and emergency lockdown training' exercise currently. - David
Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune (/ləˈdʒɜːrn/lə-JURN) is a 246-square-mile (640 km2) United States military training facility in Jacksonville, North Carolina. The base's 14 miles (23 km) of beaches make it a major area for amphibious assault training, and its location between two deep-water ports (Wilmington and Morehead City) allows for fast deployments.
The main base is supplemented by six satellite facilities: Marine Corps Air Station New River, Camp Geiger, Stone Bay, Courthouse Bay, Camp Johnson, and the latest addition to the facility, the Greater Sandy Run Training Area.
