The Globe is a weekly newspaper published for the Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune - (pronounced LUH JERN by some) community. In addition to its military staff and correspondents, The Globe carries a civilian bureau, employed by Fayetteville Publishing.

The Globe has been the official publication of Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune since Feb. 23, 1944, when Maj. Gen. Henry Louis Larsen, commanding officer, saw the need for a larger newspaper to replace The New River Pioneer. The mission of The Globe is to provide robust support to the base and its tenant commands. The Globe is published on a weekly basis and keeps the Marines, sailors, and the surrounding community in touch with what's happening on base and what the Corps is accomplishing locally and worldwide.

The Globe newspaper is the official DOD publication that supports MCB Camp Lejeune, MCAS New River and MCAS Cherry Point with a combined economic impact of $6.12 billion.
