Revisit History from the Top Snead’s Ferry Beach Hotels
A must see for history buffs, cross the Snead’s Ferry bridge into nearby Camp Lejeune. During World War II, more than 300,000 Marines moved through Camp Lejeune, including those who went to fight in Guadalcanal, Okinawa and Iwo Jima. It's also the site of the first Marine Corps Women's Reserve training center—which trained around 2,000 women to work in administrative jobs at Camp Pendleton and Camp Lejeune during World War II—and one of seven sites where the Navy's Hospital Corpsman School trained its corpsmen. Today, it's now home to more than 40,000 military personnel and their families. In 1984, however, Camp Lejeune became notorious for something other than its military history: its drinking water was found to be contaminated by industrial solvents and other chemicals released on the base.
