Warrior Care Month is a time to reflect on the strength and resilience of our nation’s wounded, ill, and injured service members while also recognizing the dedication of military caregivers who support our service members during their recovery and rehabilitation.

Since 2008, the Department of Defense has dedicated the month of November to increasing awareness of programs and resources available to this community—programs and resources designed to support service members as they achieve significant milestones during their recovery process.

Marines Answer the Call

A U.S. Marine UH-1Y Venom helicopter with Marine Light Attack Helicopter Squadron 169, Marine Aircraft Group 39, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing, carries water in support of firefighting efforts against the Valley Fire in Southern California on Sept. 9, 2020.

The fire has burned an estimated 17,665 acres *update acreage before posting* and resources from the local area have been focused on containing the spread of the fire. The Marines began providing air support Sept. 7 with UH-1Y Venom helicopters after California’s Department of Forestry and Fire Protection requested military assistance.

Earlier this month, Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune’s newspaper, The Globe, published its final printed issue.

The Globe’s first edition was published on Feb. 23, 1944 after Maj. Gen. Henry Louis Larsen, the commanding general of Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, saw the need for a larger newspaper to replace The New River Pioneer. The newspaper was published for almost 77 years, issuing approximately 3,800 editions.

For current MCB Camp Lejeune and Marine Corps Air Station New River news, updates, productions, and content follow on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and website.
