Time Limit For Welcome Home Banners

Most of the year, the fences that line Highway 24 in Jacksonville are lined with welcome home banners for Marines and Sailors coming back from deployment.

Recently, there were dozens of new signs added to the mix that read, "signs and banners will be removed every Thursday."

Camp Lejeune added the signs to make sure that signs are taken down and removed, so they don't stay up for long periods of time -- which often happens long after a loved one has returned home.

The base removes banners which are tattered, lewd or offensive.
