    Visiting camp Lejeune

    Hi there! What are the rules regarding visitation while the Marines are stationed? My boyfriend (the Marine) will be heading to Camp Lejeune very soon and we weren't sure how that worked. His family and I want to go visit when we can. Are they allowed to have people stay with them once they are stationed or would I/we need to get a hotel? My Marine heard that I could come stay with him, but since he will be in barracks with a roommate (I think?), I assumed that was false and that I would need to stay elsewhere. See More
