A little history.
Jason and Rachel Campbell officially opened their doors in September 2007 and are located in the thriving metropolis of Hubert, North Carolina near Jacksonville, home of Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and New River Air Station.
Jason retired after over 23 years as a Welder/Engineer Equipment Chief (1316/1349) in the Marine Corps. He was always the “Plaque Guy” at all of his duty stations and decided, along with his wife Rachel, to go at it full time.
Rachel is the Vice President, office manager, and mounts medals on occasion. Her most underpaid position is tolerating and trying to keep four retired Marines on task!
In the summer of 2009, Chuck Roberts joined the team and heads up the production of plaques and shadow boxes.
Joe Ascone is the 40-pound-brain computer geek that takes care of the website and sheds “light” on projects. He came on board in October 2011.
After our son, Blake, left for Marine Corps boot camp in December 2012, we were joined by Rick Jude. He builds and assembles projects with a keen eye.
Misty Glore came on board in August 2013 and is our medal mounting machine. She painstakingly mounts medals and ribbons to ensure each customer is squared away for the next inspection or formal event.
Tim Owings joined us in May 2014 and works hand-in-hand with Chuck creating sawdust and producing our works of art.
Our other son, Bryn, attends college full time and assists where needed.
C-Stories is a play on words. Naval terminology refers to a “Sea Story” as a tale of some exciting or interesting experience, real and/or imagined.
We dropped the “Sea” and replaced it with “C” for Campbell.
Everything we produce usually provokes Sea Stories to be exchanged, from items in a shadow box or medals worn on a uniform.
With each visit, you will meet dedicated professionals that are excited to give you an overall great experience.
We are committed to our client’s happiness and cater to all branches of the armed forces, public service, and personal requests.
C-Stories is a down-to-earth shop that makes you feel at home!
