I've seen full scale war games there in Camp LeJeune with Apaches, Harriers and live fire at the old Liberty (?) ship they used to have in that harbour, Quite a show. I was amazed that they allowed six or seven anchored cruisers to stay. Freakin' noise was unbelievable.

The hysterical laughter you hear as you drive a way in your"new" boat ..... is the seller.

Yep..I have videos of ‘em but this site won’t take ‘em.. They take up just about the whole width of the AICW when they run!

I guess your just in front of me..
