The one in NC is unofficially known as Fayettenam.

Yup, Ft Bragg. When I was in HS Fayetteville 71st always had some insane army brats on the wrestling team.

Was stationed at LeJeune but we flew into Fayetteville after Afghanistan.

It was like the Army version of Jacksonville. It was the exact same, but different.

Oh, dope! Jacksonville is easily one of the top 10 swamp cities in northeastern Florida.

I was referring to Jacksonville,NC; where USMC base Camp LeJeune is located.

But yeah I hear Jville FL is swamp land.

We played a playoff football game against 71st and the fuckers had like a 280 pound fullback.

They'd throw him the ball in the flat and I swear the ball made a noticeably different noise when it hit his hands. Like a thump because there was so much meat on those paws.

Been thru once to see a friend graduate. Full of car dealerships, strip clubs, and pawn shops packed with military gear.

Grew up in Sanford ~45 minutes away, this is exactly correct. People do, indeed, call it Fayettenam.

You’re the only true North Carolinian in here. There’s only one Fayettenam and there is definitely only one Bragg boulevard

Every major Army post has a Bragg Boulevard equivalent.
