Exploring Jacksonville NC

Whenever I think of Jacksonville NC
all I think about is the Marine Corps base there
and how much I would NOT want to be stationed here.
I'm sure all military wives have their I hope we 
NEVER have to go there bases.
If you are a Marine wife who has never been to Camp Lejeune you
may be just like me and have it on the absolutely not list.
Well, rumors suck let me tell you.
I am here on vacation for a week while my hubby is in a school
and so far I could see myself living here.
Of course there are a lot of tattoo, pawn shops and strip clubs
but it is by a Marine Base after all. 
I told the hubby it was now ok to put Camp Lejeune on our 'list".
While I have been here I have visited with my bestie whom I 
hadn't seen in almost 4 years.
Being that she lives here that might have something to do with my
all of a sudden "I could live here" attitude.
Yesterday after dinner the hubby suggested we take baby Hulk
to the Vietnam and Beirut memorials here. 
Now, being that everywhere there is something I couldn't imagine 
there was going to be anywhere with enough space. 
I was again wrong about Jacksonville, NC.
The memorial is beautifully done.
Here are some of the pictures I took on my cell yesterday since
I left the good camera in the hotel.
