Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point and its outlying fields will be busy this month with training events, and people in the area will notice an increase in military vehicles and in the sights and sounds of training operations.

Officials say that will include training on the ground at Outlying Fields Atlantic and Grove throughout the entire month.

Paratroopers will be training during the day at Marine Corps Auxiliary Landing Field Bogue March 10-30, and at Oak Grove on several days between March 6-23.

Those who live close to Cherry Point may also hear the occasional explosion.

Annette is originally a Midwest gal, born and raised in Michigan, but with career stops in many surrounding states, the Pacific Northwest, and various parts of the southeast. She has been involved in the media industry in eastern North Carolina for more than three years. An award-winning journalist and mother of four, Annette moved to ENC to be closer to family – in particular, her two young grandchildren. It’s possible that a -27 day with a -68 windchill in Minnesota may have also played a role in that decision. In her spare time, Annette does a lot of toddler and baby cuddling, reading, designing costumes for children’s theater and producing the coolest Halloween costumes anyone has ever seen. She has also worked as a diversity and inclusion facilitator serving school districts and large corporations. It’s the people that make this beautiful area special, and she wants to share those stories that touch the hearts of others.
