PDS MCAS Cherry Point: Welcome

When visitors come to Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, one of the first things many of them notice is the roar of jet aircraft passing over the front gate on their way to or from runway number 5/23. On a sign outside the gate, are the words, "Pardon our noise, it's the sound of freedom." For more than 75 years, those sounds of freedom have echoed through local skies, from the deep, guttural growl of amphibious biplanes and single-wing attack aircraft during World War II, to the piercing whine of todays sleek and sophisticated jets. Those sounds are music to the ears of the Marines who fight on the ground, for there is nothing Marines like better than to have Marine artillery behind them, Marine intelligence in front of them and Marine aircraft overhead.

Located only 20 miles from some of the Atlantic's most beautiful beaches, Cherry Point is about 90 miles west-southwest of Cape Hatteras, at the foot of the great Outer Banks. It is perhaps appropriate that the home of such a powerful aviation arsenal is just down the coast from Kitty Hawk, where winged aviation got its start.

Duty at Cherry Point is challenging. Whether you're headed for the 2d Marine Aircraft Wing for duty with the Fleet Marine Force, or support service with the air station or one of its tenant activities, the tasks are varied and rewarding. And they're all directed toward the same end ; providing country and Corps with a combat-ready aerial striking force. This guide is designed to give you a comprehensive snapshot of Cherry Point, from information about the commands that work here, to housing and shopping information, to off-duty activities that are USMC Photo available on and off base.
