Established in May 2001, and funded by the Air Force Aid Society, the Heart Link Spouse Orientation Program helps to empower spouses and family members by providing community services and resources to enhance mission readiness.

The Coast Guardsmen accompanied security boats and essential equipment aboard the C-17 Globemaster III, while other members of the unit joined them the following week. “Overseas deployments for the Coast Guard as a whole, are minimal, especially for a reserve unit,” said U.S. Coast Guard Machinery Technician 1st Class Eric Zupan, PSU 305 crewmember. “Our port security unit and our sister unit are the only ones who do it, so it’s fairly unique to our service.”

JBLE Commentaries
February 14, 2017 - Twenty-six years ago on Jan. 16, 1991 at 7 p.m. EST, President George H. W. Bush announced the start, of what would later be named, Operation Desert Storm. Coalition forces began a five-week bombardment of Iraqi command and control targets from air and sea, and reached a successful cease-fire within 100 hours.
January 24, 2017 - Integrity is the cornerstone of our core values. We say that, integrity is doing what is right when no one is looking. But integrity is also saying what is right even when everyone is looking, when no one is ready to hear and regardless of who is asking. This is the integrity of speaking up. We know that exhibiting integrity in our actions is imperative, but there is perhaps even greater power in the words we speak, especially when those words are bound to deeds. Real words, thoughtfully considered, spoken aloud, without enmity and with a constructive goal.
December 13, 2016 - Family, this word has different meanings to different people. Most of us claim some sort of family. I believe there are four kinds of family to which we each belong. First, we have our family of birth. Let’s face it, we all came from two individuals and we didn’t have a choice with our birth family – it just “is.”
November 21, 2016 - Joint Base Langley-Eustis community members quickly learn to identify and distinguish the two types of aircraft currently flying here, the F-22 Raptor and the T-38 Talon. More perceptive fans of military aviation, like myself may also identify the B-52 Stratofortress and F-4 Phantom near the LaSalle Gate, the F-15 Eagle that overlooks the Armistead Gate or the mix of fighter aircraft that adorn Heritage Park.
November 15, 2016 - I went to the Base Exchange the other day and tried to strike up a conversation with the associate in the checkout aisle scanning the items I intended to purchase. “How are you doing?” I asked, hoping to break the awkward silence that greeted me. “Have you been busy today?”

January 31, 2017 - At first glance, it’s easy to see the Johns family is not a typical military family. Though three children and a dog may seem normal, the six-year-old in a stroller and the dog wearing a vest would clearly catch any onlooker’s eye. U.S. Army Sgt. Matthew Johns, 221st Military Police Detachment military police officer, his wife Nikki, their three daughters Nikita, age 18, Eveylynn, age nine, AudreeAna, age six, and an English lab named Hope, arrived at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Virginia, in Oct. 2016 due to a permanent change of station. Together, they have relied on the Army, teachers and each other for support for AudreeAna’s medical condition.

December 14, 2016 - Three Airmen took deep breaths as they approached a blue mat where a 5-foot 5-inch, 135-pound blonde woman was beginning her warm-up exercises.

August 10, 2016 - As retired U.S. Army Chaplain (Lt. Col.) James King walked up to a stranger’s home, his fingers rhythmically glide over his clammed palms and his skin tingles into a lighter tone. He knew the tears to come were unavoidable, and that he must knock on the door, gain his composure as he and another Soldier tell someone that the person they love died serving their country. While part of King’s duties as a chaplain were to deliver this message and help people through other difficult situations, King said that the rate at which he had to do so became overwhelming due to recent contingency operations. To battle his plight, he sought help through traditional and non-traditional avenues including an all veteran comedy class.
