Marines who are preparing for a permanent change of station to Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, might be trolling Craigslist for housing.
Well, this listing might have everything you’re looking for — or perhaps everything you’re hoping to escape.
On July 20, a Craigslist user posted a one-bedroom rental that would be available in two weeks. The “lovely” 225 square foot space is located in a “gated community with 24-hour private security,” the advertisement states. Rent is $1,000 per month, and can be conveniently paid “on the 1st or split between the 1st and 15th with automatic withdrawal.”
There are not only free laundry facilities and gym memberships, but also running trails with “motivation specialists” to “encourage” runners.
Barracks are ever so much nicer than they once were. And yet barracks life still sucks.
