Norfolk, Va. – The Junction, at 16916 Warwick Blvd. in Newport News and Variety Motors at 3530 N. Military Highway in Norfolk have been removed from the off-limits list by the Joint Armed Forces Disciplinary Control Board (JAFDCB) for Southeastern Virginia and Northeastern North Carolina.

The businesses were removed from the off-limits list because of efforts demonstrated by the businesses to resolve the board’s concerns and status reports provided to the Board by local law enforcement agencies. 

The complete list of establishments currently off-limits to all members of the Armed Forces is:

-Hampton Pipe and Tobacco, 86 W. Mercury Blvd., Hampton, Virginia 23669

-Hampton Pipe and Tobacco, 15435-B Warwick Blvd., Newport News, Virginia 23608

-Hampton Pipe and Tobacco, 4796 George Washington Memorial Highway, Hayes Virginia 23072

-Lazy Days, 731 J Clyde Morris Blvd., Ste B, Newport News, Virginia 23601

-Lazy Days, 839 W. 21st Street, Norfolk, Virginia 23517

-Mellow Smoke Tobacco Shop, 1948 Diamond Springs Road, Virginia Beach, Virginia 23455

-Outer Edge Gifts, 760-B J. Clyde Morris Blvd., Newport News, Virginia 23601

-Blazin Herbs, 85 W Mercury Blvd., Hampton, Virginia 23669 

The safety and security of all service members is a priority for the Department of Defense.

The JAFDCB is an investigative committee composed of members from each military service and civilian advisers, who work with local law enforcement agencies and local businesses to identify conditions which may adversely affect the health, safety, welfare, and discipline of the Armed Forces.

The off-limits order applies to all military personnel – active duty and reserves.

Establishments are given the opportunity to notify the JAFDCB in writing that corrective actions have taken place. Removal from the list will be considered by the Board upon presentation that satisfactory corrective action has been taken.

Failure to respond will result in the Board making a request for establishment representatives to appear in person at a formal hearing of the JAFDCB.
