Joint Base Langley–Eustis is a United States military facility located adjacent to Hampton and Newport News, Virginia. The base is an amalgamation of the United States Air Force's Langley Air Force Base and the United States Army's Fort Eustis which were merged on 1 October 2010. The base was established in accordance with congressional legislation implementing the recommendations of the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure Commission. The legislation ordered the consolidation of the two facilities which were adjoining, but separate military installations, into a single Joint Base, one of 12 formed in the United States as a result of the law.

Unlike other joint bases that share common perimeters, the two components are geographically separated by 17 miles. In January 2010, the Air Force reactivated the 633d Air Base Wing to assume host unit and installation support functions at each location. The installation assumed its full operational capability (FOC) in October 2010. The 633rd ABW commander is Col. John Allen, Jr., with Chief Master Sgt. Trae King as its command chief master sergeant. The 633rd ABW is responsible to Air Combat Command.

Fort Eustis, a historic Army installation and the second half of Joint Base Langley–Eustis, is an area to train service members in transportation, aviation maintenance, logistics and deployment doctrine with its diverse landscape and easy access to the James River.

The installation is the training ground for the majority of the transportation MOSs (with the exception of the 88M truck driver specialty located at Fort Leonard Wood, Mo.) and all of the helicopter maintenance technicians. It is the home of the Transportation Regiment, and received the transfer of some activities that were conducted at Fort Monroe, which was decommissioned on September 15, 2011 under BRAC.  (Courtesy of Wikipedia)

"Great Duty Station"

REVIEWED on July 12, 2016

Our family has been stationed at Langley AFB for several years. It is a great duty station and has everything you need. It's a good size base. There is even a marina. Hampton Roads has a ton to offer. There are great beaches, festivals, history, shopping and of course a ton of military members and families in the local community. We love the area.
