    If you're traveling to Jacksonville you more than likely have family in the military. My brother showed us around the base he works at, Camp New River. It was really nice to see how our country has organized our defenses.

    I'm not quite sure what I am allowed to show on here and what I'm not. I'll put what I think is best... If there are problems I'll be glad to erase whatever is inappropriate!

    More info is on the website!

    Camp Legeune is what makes Jacksonville, Jacksonville. Most of the economy is brought in by the 150,000 people living on and around the base. If you can get in the gate (with a military ID or someone who has one) it is amazing to see if you've never been on a base. With over 156,000 acres it's amazing to see how self-sufficient it is. From golf courses, to three public schools (elementary, middle, and high school), to a naval hospital, movies theatres, mall, etc. And, don't forget the neighborhoods!

    This was my first actual base so I was definitely blown away. It's fun to see. Definitely check it out!
