Signal Training at New River

Volume 28, Issue 2

Roger M Emmons

THE Signal Battalion at Camp Lejeune, New River, N. C., conducts one of the most interesting and varied training programs to be found anywhere in the Marine Corps. The camp itself is ideally situated for signal training. Lying along the North Carolina seacoast and around the New River estuary, its extensive area provides a wide variety of terrain for training purposesbeaches, dunes, swamps, ravines, inlets, dense undergrowth, and large wooded areas-similar to those to be found on many of the world's war fronts today.
