Cherry Point In The Running For Anti-Terrorism Unit

Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point is in the running to house the consolidation of several Marine Corps anti-terrorism units, along with two military bases in Virginia.

Marine Corps officials say the Yorktown Naval Weapons Station and the Naval Security Group in Chesapeake are among three finalists selected from a pool of 35 bases to become the home of the Fleet Anti-Terrorism Security Team. The third is the Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, in Havelock, N.C.

The sites will undergo environmental-impact assessments as well as studies of potential economic and social effects, including impacts on traffic and schools.
