Joint Base Langley-Eustis
In accordance with the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure Commission report, Langley Air Force Base and Fort Eustis merged their administrative functions, becoming Joint Base Langley-Eustis on Jan. 29, 2010. The Hampton Roads metropolitan region — including Virginia Beach, Norfolk and Newport News, Virginia — is home to JBLE. Unlike other joint bases that share common boundaries, Langley Air Force Base in Hampton and Fort Eustis in Newport News are separated by 17 miles. The joint base is home to nearly 15,000 military personnel, 6,000 civilian personnel and 33,700 dependents.
Joint basing promotes a more cohesive operational partnership between the Air Force and Army while preserving mission capabilities and unique service identities. The 633rd Air Base Wing at Langley, inactive since 1994, assumed host unit duties from the 1st Fighter Wing, which had served in that capacity since 1975. But the 1st Fighter Wing continues operations and maintenance at the base to ensure global air superiority. All functions from base defense and medical care to food service and supplies are the responsibility of the Air Force. Other major units at Langley include the 192nd Fighter Wing; the 363rd Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Wing; and the 480th Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Wing. For a full list of Air Force units at JBLE, visit www.jble.af.mil/Units/Air-Force.
Fort Eustis was established in 1918 and has served a number of purposes including an Army training facility for artillery and artillery observation, a prison and a work camp. Beginning in the World War II era, the primary mission of Fort Eustis has been Army transportation training, research and development, engineering and operations, including aviation and marine shipping activities. Major units at Fort Eustis include the 7th Transportation Brigade (Expeditionary), 128th Aviation Brigade, 597th Transportation Brigade, 733rd Mission Support Group, Enterprise Multimedia Center, Joint Deployment Training Center, Joint Task Force Civil Support, Mission and Installation Contracting Command, and U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command. For a full list of Army units at JBLE, visit www.jble.af.mil/Units/Army.
Both Langley’s and Fort Eustis’ storied histories mirror that of the even older Hampton Roads region, with miles of shoreline and breathtaking water views greatly enhancing the distinct small-town feel of light traffic and abundant amenities. The area’s nearly 2 million residents enjoy historic sites, extraordinary museums and countless miles of scenic waterways and hiking trails. The moderate four-season climate, location and military environment also attract many military retirees and their families.
LANGLEY AIR FORCE BASE
Langley Air Force Base was the first U.S. military base built specifically for air power. It’s the oldest continually active Air Force base in the world, boasting a rich history within the U.S. Air Force and the surrounding Hampton Roads area.
Indeed, Langley (originally set up in 1916 as the Army’s Aviation Experimental Station and Proving Grounds) represents significant chapters in the evolution of flight. Such air power greats as Eddie Rickenbacker, Raoul Lufbery, Douglas Campbell and Frank Luke Jr., known as the “Arizona Balloon Buster,” made aviation history as part of the country’s first and second-oldest fighter units on the base. Langley personnel have often lead the way in global action flying lighter-than-air aircraft, as well as Spads, Jennys, F-86 Sabre Jets, F-4 Phantom IIs, the F-15 Eagle and the F-22A Raptor.
In 1917, the new proving ground was designated Langley Field in honor of air pioneer Samuel Pierpont Langley, who in 1903 launched his heavier-than-air craft from a houseboat catapult. By late 1918, several buildings and such aircraft as the JN-4 Curtis Jenny — used by Langley’s School of Aerial Photography — the de Havilland DH-4 bomber and hydrogen-filled dirigibles dotted the field.
In the early 1920s, Brig. Gen. Billy Mitchell led bombing runs from Langley over captured German warships anchored off the coast of Virginia. These first successful tests set the precedent for the strategic bombing missions to come.
Throughout the 1930s, the base served as the Army’s justification to strengthen its offensive and defensive air arm. The Army Air Corps transformed the small grassy field into a major airfield, and many of the brick buildings of today sprang up.
The outbreak of World War II presented a new mission: Develop special detector equipment for anti-submarine warfare. These components eventually helped sink enemy submarines off the Eastern Seaboard.
In May 1946, the newly formed Tactical Air Command moved into Langley. The command’s mission was to organize, train, equip and maintain combat-ready forces for rapid air deployment.
The jets that accompanied TAC signaled a new era for the base, and in January 1948, Langley Field became Langley Air Force Base. The next major thrust occurred in June 1992, when the Air Force inactivated TAC and the newly formed Air Combat Command became the base’s primary and all-inclusive provider of such air combat forces as intercontinental ballistic missiles and fighter, bomber, reconnaissance and battle-management aircraft.
These days Langley AFB sprawls across 3,152 acres in Hampton, Virginia — about 62 miles south of Richmond, the state capital, and 40 miles north of Virginia Beach, the state’s largest city — and employs more than thousands of military and civilian personnel.
Known in colonial times as Mulberry Island and the home of John Rolfe, husband of Native American princess Pocahontas, Fort Eustis originated 90 years ago as a camp and later as a post. In March 1918, with World War I looming, the Army bought Mulberry Island and the surrounding acreage for $538,000. Camp Abraham Eustis replaced Fort Monroe as a coast artillery installation and a balloon observation school. It was named for Brevet Brig. Gen. Abraham Eustis, the first commanding officer of Fort Monroe.
The camp transitioned to a fort and a permanent military installation in 1923, with artillery and infantry units. Eight years later, the fort served as a federal prison, primarily for bootleggers until the repeal of Prohibition.
In 1940, Fort Eustis reopened as the Coast Artillery Replacement Training Center, and six years later the newly formed Transportation School relocated from New Orleans. The move consolidated all training in rail, marine amphibious operations and other modes of transportation. This expertise opened the door for the 200-year-old Transportation Corps in 1942. As far back as the Revolutionary War, when Gen. George Washington appointed the first wagon master, transporters have moved and sustained the nation’s fighting forces through the War of 1812, the Civil War, the Spanish-American War, World War I and beyond.
But the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor commenced the largest mobilization in the nation’s history, and President Franklin D. Roosevelt quickly established the Transportation Corps. By the end of the war, this outfit had moved more than 30 million soldiers within the continental United States and 7 million soldiers plus 126 million tons of supplies overseas.
After the unit helped sustain Berlin during the Russian occupation in 1948, President Harry Truman in 1950 made the Transportation Corps a permanent branch of the Army. During the Korean War, the corps supplied U.N. forces through three brutal winters and moved more than 3 million soldiers and 7 million tons of cargo. Using watercraft, amphibians, motor trucks and aircraft in a hostile, undeveloped tropical environment, the outfit next supported American and allied forces throughout the Vietnam War.
In 1986, the U.S. Army Regimental System inducted the Transportation Corps, heralding a new era in innovative military transport and support. Since then the corps has ensured that every soldier has the resources to face and defeat the enemy in Iraq, Somalia, Rwanda, Haiti and Bosnia.
LANGLEY AIR FORCE BASE
633rd Air Base Wing
The activation of the 633rd Air Base Wing as the host unit for Langley AFB on Jan. 7, 2010, was the first step toward Joint Base Langley-Eustis. The wing’s three groups — the 633rd Medical Group, 633rd Mission Support Group and 733rd Mission Support Group — provide installation support to military and civilian personnel including Headquarters Air Combat Command and three operational wings. The wing provides mission-ready expeditionary airmen to combatant commanders in support of joint and combined operations worldwide.
1st Fighter Wing
The 1st Fighter Wing — the Air Force’s oldest wing — operates and maintains the F-22 Raptor. To accomplish their mission, the men and women of the wing work in one of two groups: the operations group or the maintenance group. From World War 1 to the current generation’s operations across the globe, the 1st Fighter Wing continues its tradition of air dominance.

Dental care services at JBLE-Eustis and JBLE-Langley are available for active-duty military personnel. Family members of active-duty personnel are encouraged to use the TRICARE Dental Program. Program information is available by visiting www.tricare.mil/CoveredServices/Dental/TDP.
TRICARE is the health care program for active-duty and retired service members, their families and survivors. TRICARE provides health plans, prescriptions, dental plans and other special health programs to its beneficiaries. TRICARE’s mission is to enhance the Department of Defense and the nation’s security by providing health support for the full range of military operations and sustaining the health of all those entrusted to their care.
TRICARE offers a range of health care plans. TRICARE Prime is the mandatory health care option for active-duty service members. Family members of active-duty service members, retired service members and their families may also use this option. If you use TRICARE Prime, you are assigned a primary care manager at a military or network provider who delivers most of your care. If you need care your PCM cannot provide, you are referred to a specialist. Active-duty service members and their families pay nothing out of pocket for this option; however, there is less freedom to choose your provider. On Jan. 1, 2018, TRICARE Standard and Extra were combined into a new plan, TRICARE Select. Select is a standardized fee-for-service plan available to family members of active-duty service members, retired service members and their families. After you enroll in TRICARE Select, you may schedule an appointment with any TRICARE-authorized provider. Referrals are not required, but you may need prior authorization from your regional contractor for some services. You will pay a copay or cost share based on the type of care and provider you see. Costs for Select vary, but you will pay an annual deductible as well as a percentage of covered services. Non-network providers may charge up to 15 percent more than the TRICARE allowable charge; you are responsible for these extra charges. TRICARE also offers plans for remote and overseas locations, reserve military members, young adults who are no longer covered under regular TRICARE coverage and other scenarios.
TRICARE coverage is completely portable, so it moves with you when you relocate. Follow these simple steps to ensure you have no break in coverage when you move:
- Do not cancel your TRICARE Prime enrollment option before you move.
- Update your personal information in DEERS immediately when you arrive at your new location.
- Select a new primary care manager.
If you are already using TRICARE Select, moving is easy. When you arrive at your new location, update your personal information in DEERS. Then find TRICARE-authorized providers in your new area. Remember, you may have a new regional contractor and claims filing address.
TRICARE’s online tools can help you find and compare plans that you are qualified to use. Beginning in 2019, however, TRICARE will allow you to switch between plans only if you have a “qualifying life event” such as the birth of a baby or a move. For a complete description of the types of coverage programs and regions, visit www.tricare.mil. For more information about recent changes to TRICARE, visit https://tricare.mil/changes.
