You won’t believe what’s happening to the iconic Driftwood Lounge outside Camp Lejeune | Marine Corps Times

For some driving down Highway 24 in Jacksonville, North Carolina, the off-white exterior and nondescript sign of this business would hardly have warranted a second look.

But when, last week, the sign for the Driftwood Lounge went down, collective gasps and virtual tears rippled across the internet.

The Driftwood, since 1979, has been the place many a 2nd Marine Division boot chased hazy dreams after finishing engineer school, returning from the field or just to grab cheap beers on a week night for a relief from life on Camp Lejeune.

The thumping music, flashing lights and strange combined scent of cheap perfume, the ubiquitous strip-club lotion smell found in all corners of the globe, and other unidentifiable odors mark the memories of many a Marine who spent time in the swampy home of the 2nd Marine Division.
