The Joint Armed Forces Disciplinary Control Board of Southeastern Virginia identified several establishments as off-limits to military members. Military members are prohibited from entering the premises of, and conducting business with the following:
• The Vault, Vape and Hookah Shop, formerly known as The Vault, 15435-B Warwick Blvd., Newport News, Virginia 23608
• The Vault, Vape and Hookah Shop, formerly known as Unwind, 731 J. Clyde Morris Blvd., Suite B, Newport News, Virginia 23601
• The Vault, Vape and Hookah Shop, formerly known as Unwind, 389 West 21st Street, Norfolk, Virginia 23518
• Mellow Smoke Tobacco Shop, 201 East Berkeley Ave., Suite C, Norfolk, Virginia 23523
• Outer Edge Gifts, 760-B J. Clyde Morris Blvd., Newport News, Virginia 23601
• 7 City's Custom & Design, also known as Envy Car Audio & Design and Unique Auto Design, 1062 37th Street, Norfolk, Virginia 23508 or 117 Princess Anne Rd., Norfolk, Virginia 23510; Autoworks, 6100 Tidewater Dr., Norfolk, Virginia 23509; and D Motors, 881 East Little Creek Rd., Norfolk, Virginia 23518
• Best Price Auto Sales, also known as U.S. Auto Excellence, 3336 Holland Rd., Virginia Beach, Virginia 23452
• Prime Auto, also known as Skyline Auto, 4114 East Indian River Rd., Chesapeake, Virginia 23325
• Tyku Bar, 1910 Atlantic Ave., Virginia Beach, Virginia 23451
Service members will refrain from conducting business with or entering the premises of the off-limits establishments, and commanding officers will inform personnel in their commands of these prohibitions.
The establishments will remain on the off-limits list until the next scheduled meeting of the AFDCB, at which time the board will reconsider the status of each business currently on the list. The AFDCB works closely with businesses that are being considered for the off-limits list to avoid these actions. Mitigation efforts demonstrated by area businesses, and communication to the board by the businesses, often have favorable results.
Establishments are given an opportunity to notify the AFDCB in writing that corrective actions have occurred. Removal from the list will be considered by the board upon presentation that satisfactory corrective actions have 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 AFDCB.
The safety and security of all service members is a priority for the Department of Defense. The AFDCB is an investigative committee composed of members from each military service in the Hampton Roads area, as well 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.
