    Question Parris Island

    I have heard over the past year that Parris Island maybe moving up to Camp Lejeune. Is there any truth to this?

    Will NEVER happen.

    The recruiting command will likely move, but recruit training will not.

    SanDiego MCRD on the other hand is likely going to move up to Pendleton MCB by the year 2015.

    Prime real estate-if they can't steal Miramar, they'll settle for the MCRD for their airport expansion.

    I am very surprised that it survived this long.

    The land that Parris Island is on does the Military own or lease

    Owns, there is very little land that the military leases on the mainland, usually it is other entities leaseing it from DOD. If Parris Island was ocean front it would be very valuable and might have some worth to develop over what it is used for now, but since it is in the Port Royal Sound it has better value as training site. SanDiego MCRD on the otherhand is very valuable to the airport and the city, and DOD could make more than enough getting rid of it to relocate to Pendleton and would later reap some substantial savings by combineding facilities up there. The fact that it has lasted this long is a testament to the political power of Marines who went through there in the past.
