The last time our family was waiting for orders, we had three possibilities: Camp Lejeune, Miramar, or Kaneohe Bay. I’m originally from the West Coast, and I was so ready to be stationed back on the Pacific Ocean after two years in Florida. And then, we got orders up to North Carolina. I was devastated. But after three years spent here on Camp Lejeune, I have learned to love this place that I once thought I would never even like.
