MCAS New-River Community


Welcome aboard Marine Corps Air Station New River. Whether you are a newly assigned Marine or Sailor or just visiting the Air Station, we hope you find your assignment rewarding and career enhancing.

Approximately 7,000 Marines, Sailors, Airmen and 1,000 civilian employees work on a daily basis to meet the demands of operating the Corps’ only East Coast rotary wing and tiltrotor Air Station. We are home to two Marine Aircraft Groups, several premier training units and the first operational MV-22 squadrons. For more than 60 years, our primary mission has been providing combat assault support for Fleet Marine Force units worldwide. Our dedication and reputation have made us a key part of the II Marine Expeditionary Force and the Marine Corps Installations East team.

MCAS New River enjoys an excellent relationship with the surrounding Jacksonville and Onslow County communities. Our continued success depends on strengthening our partnerships with state and local governments.

We understand our inherent influence on the economic growth in the surrounding areas. Our service members and civilian employees living throughout the local community participate and contribute at all levels of government, adding to the social and economic health of the region.

Inside this guide you will find information on the services available to Marines, Sailors, civilian personnel and their families.

We’ll introduce you to all the amenities we have to offer, from the many family support programs to the outstanding recreational opportunities that abound here. The maps and phone directory should help you navigate through the facility.

Once again, welcome aboard, and please enjoy your time at MCAS New River.
