Perdue pays a visit to Camp Lejeune


Governor Perdue emerged from her morning briefing eager to talk about the Marines, especially those who spend more and more time lately deploying to danger zones while civilians sleep soundly. She said with so many preparing to leave as part of the surge in Afghanistan, North Carolinians should embrace the Marine families left behind. Perdue also said the Jacksonville community needs some upgrades to accommodate 65,000 people; many moving here right now, as part of the Base Realignment Commission Program. Last week, 8,000 troops from Camp Lejeune received their deployment orders to Afghanistan. The first 1,500 will leave before Christmas.
