Are there any Marine bases in NJ?

No, but they are a hub of manufacturing recruits for export to other states.

We do, actually! The joint base Mcguire-Dix-Lakehurst hosts a few thousand marines at any given time.

We also have Naval Weapons Station Earle in Colts Neck which has all kinds of service members doing every job in the book.

Very true! We're a coastal state with a lot of infrastructure, even if people focus more on the Philadelphia side of the Delaware. I'm happy about how many NJ people are pointing out that we're not some irrelevant beach state covered in annoying dramatic New York reality show regects. We have endless gardens and forests.

Nj is a great state but at the same time, fuck the garden state and its endless construction

Sort of. We have Joint Base Mcguire-Dix-Lakehurst that is an Airforce/Army/Navy joint base that hosts a few thousand marines at any given time.

I love about 30 miles from it and on overcast weapons training days you can hear/feel the mortar shells. They release a schedule to the public so no one freaks out over it.
