Cherry Point drivers are advised that gate access to the flight line has permanently changed. Do not try to access to flight line or go through the previous gate.

Denim Day

As a part of Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month (SAAPM), Col Burks, commanding officer of MCAS Cherry Point, has authorized MCAS Cherry Point Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program (SAPR) to host Denim Day to increase awareness about this important issue.  Denim Day grew out of a 1998 Italian Supreme Court decision that overturned a rape conviction because the victim wore tight jeans.  All MCAS Cherry Point civilian employees are authorized to wear appropriate jeans with supervisor approval on Wednesday, April 24, 2024, in honor of Denim Day. Step forward and join us in our efforts to prevent sexual violence.
