Moving to Fort Eustis

Moving to Fort Eustis

The army base of Fort Eustis is located in the city of Newport News in Virginia. It has been subject to a name change and is now known as Joint Base Langley-Eustis, abbreviated to JBLE. This base is home to all branches of military service, with training  being its main function.

Those who are moving to a military home here will be pleased to know that the area caters to families and the area around the base offers some of the best public schools in the country. Those who are going to be staying at the base temporarily may be offered temporary accommodation, but there are also plenty of motels and hotels in the area that are used by military personnel for short-term stays.

For those who are being posted to JBLE on a long-term basis, there are 10 residential communities and the number of family homes totals more than 800. The city of Newport News has plenty of amenities for all the family and a permanent move here could be good for all concerned. There are also plenty of amenities for people of all ages at nearby Hampton.

When receiving orders for a military move to JBLE it is a good idea to make inquiries about accommodation on base, as there is not a limitless supply; however, the surrounding areas offer plenty of opportunities for living off base and many military families choose to do so.

Planning for a military move to Fort Eustis is easy when you make use of the resources provided by the military.
