McCrory meets wtih military leaders at Camp Lejeune

Posted: Updated:
JACKSONVILLE, N.C. -

Governor McCrory spent the day in the east, aboard Camp Lejuene.

The governor had lunch with Camp Lejeune leadership, discussing the future of the base among other issues. 

Mccrory toured the V-22 Osprey.

North Carolina has the 3rd largest military population in the country with more than 100,000 active duty military personnel assigned to units in our state. 

And last month, the governor signed a bill into law making it easier for industry to accept military education, training and certification.

"One of my goals is for the returning military coming home from Afghanistan and Iraq to be able to find jobs,” said Gov. Pat McCrory, (R) N.C. “If they’re already certified to drive a truck or fly a plane and do other things, let's let them have that certification without making them go through the bureaucracy of education."

The governor also signed into law Thursday the Appropriations Act of 2014, which ensures in-state tuition for veterans.
