Lejeune Officials Talk Explosives

Safety officials from the Marine Corps are hosting a public meeting about its efforts to find explosives that may have landed on beaches and marshes at an eastern North Carolina base.

The Marine Corps said it will have the session Tuesday night at Hammocks Beach State Park Visitor Center in Swansboro.

Camp Lejeune officials are investigating water, marshes and land adjacent to the coastal facility's southeast boundary where munitions may have landed. The area includes the western end of Bear Island in the state park.

Officials said there haven't been any reports of munitions being found but they are conducting the probe to ensure the safety of humans and the environment.

    Iraqi terrorists use 155 mm shells all the time to make improvised explosives such as roadside bombs, car and truck bombs, etc. I'm sure the military wants these back real bad.

    If I find them, can I keep them for show and tell at school?
