Marine Corps installations along the east coast are working their way to be operational after the passing of Hurricane Dorian this week. 

 Dorian passed the areas of Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, and MCAS New River this morning. 

 Commanders of MCAS Beaufort, Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island and Marine Corps Support Facility Blount Island terminated their evacuation orders after Dorian passed their area earlier this week and are conducting recovery operations.

“I am thankful for the dedication and perseverance by the teams at our installations and their partners working together to respond and recover from Hurricane Dorian,” said Marine Corps Installations Command Commander Maj. Gen. Edward Banta. 

 Each installation is conducting recovery operations to include but not limited to: personnel safely returning back to the installation, removing debris, damage assessments, restoring power to homes and installation facilities, continuing Marine Corps Community Services programs, project management and public works teams across the impacted locations.
 Initial damage assessments are minimal, but installations will need to complete a full damage assessment to see how Dorian impacted their area.

“Marines, sailors and their families are resilient, and MCICOM is committed to ensuring effective and efficient recovery actions following Hurricane Dorian,” said Maj. Gen. Banta. “I am proud of the collaboration and efforts of our east coast installation commanders in ensuring the safety and well-being of our community.”
Marine Corps installations continue to prepare for the expected landfall of Hurricane Dorian this week along the east coast. 

 Dorian’s landfall is expected to impact the following Marine Corps installations: Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, MCAS New River and Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. The hurricane has passed Marine Corps Support Facility Blount Island and MCAS Beaufort. 

“Our installations, our Marines, Sailors, and their families stand ready to deal with crises at home and abroad - Hurricane Dorian is no exception. Marines take care of each other, and I will continue to utilize every available resource to make sure that happens,” said Marine Corps Installations Command Commander Maj. Gen. Edward Banta in his message posted on MCICOM’s Facebook page on Sept. 2.

Marine Corps Installations Command Welcomes New Commander
Col. Anthony “Ché” Bolden retired on July 3, 2019 in a ceremony held at the Navy-Marine Corps Stadium’s Akerson Tower in Annapolis, Md. Brig. Gen. Brian Cavanaugh, Deputy Director for Joint Staff J3 Operations, U.S. Marine Corps Forces Pacific, retired Ché Bolden. Upon his retirement, Ché Bolden added to his family’s long legacy with his 26 years of service to the Corps. His father, Maj. Gen.

With a combined 60 years of honorable Marine Corps service, the Bolden family certainly left their mark on military history.

Brig. Gen. Brian Cavanaugh, Deputy Director for Joint Staff J3 Operations, U.S. Marine Corps Forces Pacific, retired Ché Bolden. Upon his retirement, Ché Bolden added to his family’s long legacy with his 26 years of service to the Corps. His father, Maj. Gen. Charles Bolden (USMC-Retired), served 34 years before retiring in 2003.
“It’s rare to come across someone superior in all of our values,” said Cavanaugh. “Ché is an excellent moral, mental and physical warrior in all respects.”
At the ceremony, Ché Bolden received a Legion of Merit Award for his service as the Assistant Chief of Staff for the MCICOM G-3/5 and G-7 Directorates. During this time, Ché Bolden proved instrumental to the operation of 24 installations with over 33,000 personnel.
While it is easy to identify the Boldens’ contributions to Marine Corps history, future innovation has been the name of the game for Ché Bolden in recent years. At the direction of Marine Corps Installations Command (MCICOM) Commander Maj. Gen. Vincent Coglianese, Ché Bolden played a pivotal role in establishing and organizing the revamped G-7 Modernization and Development Directorate.
