Today Rick got to go back home. Camp LeJeune was his home for over 5 years while he was in the Marine Corp. When we approached the gate, the guard just waved us in. We drove around on the base looking for a place to check in. Rick asked a young man (Marine) where we were to check-in...with a sorta stern look the young man said "you need to return to the front gate and get a pass to be on base".
We both kind of snickered ans said oops....we did turn around and head to the front gate.
