When Marine officers turn up unexpectedly to toss the barracks, junior Marines know that things are about to go south. That’s exactly what happened at Camp Lejeune this week.
Calling it a Health and Comfort inspection, the officers arrived, unannounced, with search dogs.
They left no closet, drawer, or ventilation shaft uninspected. By their own count, the searchers turned up some 81 “hits” or violations by the junior Marines.
Some of the confiscated items included illegal weapons, marijuana, alcohol, amphetamines and cocaine.
The Marines were also given random drug and alcohol tests.
The results of the unprecedented, surprise inspection hit news sources this morning, although none of the sources gave the exact date of when the inspection took place.
The 2nd Marine Expeditionary Force is on notice to expect additional random checks to include possible drug and alcohol testing.
According to the Corps, the inspections are designed to keep all Marines safe.
It’s not known if other Marine installations are conducting these random inspections.
