I love the diversity of the USA, the best country in the world. You can go around the states and meet military servicemen and women of all kinds. Some of these amazing Military men and women reside in the historic state of North Carolina. In fact, interestingly enough, North Carolina has the 4th largest population of active and retired military personnel of all 50 states.
Due to the additions of U.S. Army Forces Command and U.S. Army Reserve Command, Fort Bragg will be the largest Army installation in the world, and the Marine Corps will host an additional 11,500 Marines. Similar investments can be seen in the Special Operations Commands for both the Army and the Marine Corps.
The latest data indicates there is an estimated 120,000 active duty personnel living in North Carolina. at the nine military bases.
Military bases in North Carolina:
- Pope Air Force Base – Fayetteville
- Seymour Johnson Air Force Base – Goldsboro
- Fort Bragg – Fayetteville
- Simmons Army Field – Fayetteville
- USCG Air Station – Elizabeth City
- Camp Lejeune Marine Base – Jacksonville
- Cherry Point Air Station – Havelock
- New River Air Station – Jacksonville
- Cherry Point Naval Air Depot – North of Havelock
In addition to the active duty, there are over 25,000 soldiers, marines, and airmen that serve in the National Guard or Reserve Forces! Records show that most of these military service men and women have served in Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) or Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF).
When they return home from the desert and step out into the lush hills and sandy beaches along the North Carolina coast, many of these heroes are ready to change things up at home. Usually, that includes getting ready to buy a home. It is just as important that we help them get use to civilian life again as it is that we set them up for their future.
