One of the first things many notice upon entry to Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Cherry Point is the roar of jet aircraft passing over the front gate. On a sign outside the gate, are the words, “Pardon our noise, it’s the sound of freedom.” For more than 75 years, those sounds of freedom have echoed through local skies. With its rich history and proximity to beautiful beaches, it is clear why so many enjoy calling MCAS Cherry Point home.
