Contact your sponsor with your estimated arrival time and flight information if applicable before your arrival at JBLE.
Sponsorship is vital to the relocation process. Don’t PCS without talking to your sponsor before departing for JBLE. Your sponsor will answer any questions you have about the base and the local area, make lodging or dorm arrangements and meet you upon arrival. Your sponsor will be there to help you and your family until you are settled into your new community.
If you have not been in touch with a sponsor and your departure is nearing, contact your gaining unit or call JBLE-Langley’s Airman & Family Readiness Center at 757-764-3990 or JBLE-Eustis’ Army Community Service at 757-878-3638.
